Dear School Counselor,

Opioid abuse will continue to claim the lives of 50,000 young people each year unless we do something instead. Currently, Utah is ranked 7th in the nation for drug overdoses, and opioids account for 43% of those deaths.  Therefore, Senator Mike Lee, Attorney General Sean Reyes, and DEA 360 Taskforce have teamed up to host a Utah Solutions Summit to address this health crisis.

Please register yourself and your student body today. It only takes a few minutes.

What: Instead - Opioid Solutions Summit
Where: Vivint Smart Home Arena
When: October 12, 2018
How: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/coming-together-to-solve-the-opioid-crisis-5th-annual-utah-solutions-summit-tickets-49443188909#tickets

FRIDAY MORNING is the "Youth Summit" featuring a special presentation by the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation. Have you ever heard of the rap artist "Marky Mark" or seen any of his movies? (e.g. Mile 22, Shooter, Planet of the Apes, Italian Job) This is for middle and high school students, faculty, administrators, and parents.

FRIDAY AFTERNOON is the "Leadership Summit" and will involve keynote speakers, breakout sessions and panel discussions for healthcare providers, educators, legislators, law enforcement, and businesses. This is for middle and high school faculty, administrators, and parents.

FRIDAY EVENING will be a benefit concert to raise money for the cause. Everyone is invited to attend but seating is limited so buy your tickets before they sell out! This is for the general public.

Between now and the summit, there are a few things you can do to prepare...
1.       Register - Have you registered yourself and others online yet? If "not," help yourself by following this link: https://utahsolutionssummit.com/schools-registration/
2.       Transport - How will you and your students or colleagues get to and from this approved field trip? Have you considered alternative forms of travel? (e.g. LeBus, Shuttles, Trax, FrontRunner, UTA)
3.       Meals - Will you and your students or colleagues need sack lunches? (Concessions at the arena will be closed.)
4.       Purchase - Commemorative merchandise is available for purchase and proceeds sustain the program. (It's cool stuff you'll be proud to wear.)
For more information, or to overcome financial and logistical barriers, contact one of us below. We are authorized to help you.

Thank you for your support. This promises to be one of the major anti-drug abuse events of the year!

Warm regards,

Senator Mike Lee
Attorney General Sean Reyes
DEA Agent Brian Besser
