Fentanyl has changed the drug landscape. Counterfeit pills are everywhere and drug cartels are targeting our youth with our own technology…smart phones and apps. It just takes a few clicks to find a fake pill and it can delivered to your home just like ordering a pizza. The only safe pill is one that comes prescribed by a doctor and filled at a pharmacy. This is a topic that EVERY family needs to be talking about at the dinner table…often.
About the Presenter: Libby Davis is a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter and nurse. Her story of fentanyl is a very personal family tragedy. She is the mom of Cooper, a 16 year old who died from fentanyl poisoning in 2021. She and her husband, along with the rest of their family, have founded the Cooper Davis Memorial Foundation also known as “Keepin’ Clean for Coop”, a nonprofit organization with a focus on spreading awareness and providing education about the dangers of fentanyl and fake pills.
