Lavelle Prep and New Ventures' 5th annual Futures of Education luncheon was held at the Hilton Garden Inn Friday addressing substance use, recovery and the schools. This year’s Keynote Speaker was Emmy winning actress, addiction advocate and NY Times Best-Selling author of GUTS, Kristen Johnston. In addition to our celebrity Keynote Speaker, a panel of educators and experts in the field of recovery joined in on the conversation (To see the full list of panelists, please click here).
