E. Vicente Sanabria, MS, Director of Community Engagement and Support for LUK, Inc.
Addressing Opioid Overdoses: The Dance Floor and the Balcony:
Within the public sector there are a variety of perspectives on how to address social challenges, including the current opioid epidemic. Mr. Sanabria will draw on the ‘dance floor and balcony’ metaphor from the work of Ronald Heifetz, Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, in discussing how to address this current social challenge. This metaphor can be used to bridge the gap between policy makers, organizations and neighborhoods, creating more effective and sustainable change. Mr. Sanabria will share his experiences in creating change at the local and state levels.
