This event is for parents/guardians and students, administrators, educators and community members.

The legalization of marijuana in MA has resulted in mixed messages and confusion about the dangers of drug use. Dr. Potee, a board-certified Family Physician and Addiction Medicine physician, will address this during her seminar to parents and students to provide education and insights about substance abuse and addiction. As the Medical Director for the Franklin County House of Corrections, the Franklin Recovery and Treatment Center and the Pioneer Valley Regional School District, as well as the Chair of the Healthcare Solutions of the Opioid Taskforce of Franklin County, Dr. Potee has wide ranging experience on this subject and will speak candidly to her audience to inform and educate students and parents/guardians alike.

This was a very beneficial seminar that provided food for thought and useful data about what is occurring with the youth in our community. This seminar was also an excellent opportunity to ask the knowledgeable members of the panel questions as well as it opened up discussion amongst audience members. I highly recommend all to attend the next seminar of this kind in the future. We could all benefit from sharing this knowledge with friends and family adults and kids alike. Keep the conversation going!!

While on a trip to England, I kept an eye out for interesting doors. I found some doors which are truly works of art, many of which have stood the test of time and looked better because of it..
