Forsyth County (FC) is not immune to the opioid epidemic running rampant across the nation. Due to the witnessed increase in use and deaths from opioids, Forsyth County EMS initiated a Task Force made up of local and state partners. Forsyth County's Opioid Task Force meets quarterly with the next meeting being October 18, 2017, 12:30 - 2:30 PM at the Forsyth County Dept. of Public Health.
