The event’s closing speaker is Anne Hazlett, USDA Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development and former Indiana ag department director. The opioid epidemic is one of the issues she and her staff work on every day.“We will be looking to meet communities where they are and assist them with best practices and the issues that they need really to build on in their own setting for prosperity in their future,” Hazlett said. “Many of these challenges are broad and complex. They bring in issues of quality of life, the need for economic opportunity and innovation.”Tackling the epidemic requires communities to stop and chart a new vision, according to Hazlett. When they make that turn, she says the new Innovation Center at Rural Development is there to help.“Having a resource like the Innovation Center will assist them both in capacity building as well as resourced and best practices from other communities that they might be able to build from.”Hazlett says an Indiana community is one of those helping with best practices that might work elsewhere too.“Some of the lessons learned in Scott County for example,” she said. “I know that Purdue Extension is involved in a program called Strengthening Families and that program has been very successful in that community and other communities around the country, and that is a resource, a structure if you will, that can be lifted up and carried into other communities.”Another former ISDA director, Gina Sheets, was recently named Rural Development Chief Innovation Officer and is heading up the Innovation Center.The Ag Industry and Rural Community Opioid Addiction Symposium is January 5, 2018 at the Boone County Fairgrounds, Witham Exhibition Hall, 1300 100 S Lebanon, IN from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.The schedule:8:00 a.m. Registration Open8:30 a.m. Opening/Welcome-Lt.
