Organizers say that while learning how counterfeit pills affect our area requires more research, the goal of this event will be prevention and education.

“Why is this a problem? Where can they find these pills, for example? What are the things we can do as a community, as parents, to try and help our kids? We can learn a lot from these conversations,” the organization’s coordinator, Onesimo Baltazar, said.
