The International Order of the Golden Rule (OGR) in partnership with the New York Department of Health is hosting a free, informational webinar for funeral service professionals on how to address the opioid overdose crisis. The webinar “So You Think the Opioid Crisis Won’t Impact You? How Funeral Directors Can Respond” is scheduled for Tuesday, July 19 at 3:00 p.m. EDT, is free of charge, and is open to any funeral service professional.

Facilitated by Cheryll Moore, Medical Care Administrator of Erie County, NY and Charles Castiglia of Lakeside Memorial Funeral Home, Hamburg, NY, this free webinar will shed light on America’s drug epidemic and the implications it has for funeral professionals. Funeral home staff will learn about special circumstances that may impact how they interact with the deceased’s family and friends. They will also be alerted to potential safety issues and learn how to take an active role in addressing this epidemic as a member of their community.

Families dealing with a life cut short due to drug addiction are turning to their funeral service professional for comfort and answers.  This webinar will help prepare directors and staff on how to take a leadership role when walking survivors through this difficult and unexpected journey.
