She will speak on Building Community Safety in Appalachia: Poverty, Hopelessness and the Opioid Crisis. Dr. Gill will discuss her ongoing research in 3 counties in Southeastern Kentucky. Her work shows that while there are serious public safety concerns, there is also an immense amount of pride in Appalachia’s unique heritage.
