    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    The number of heroin users has more than doubled in just a decade. The death rate from overdose has nearly quadrupled. And with cut-rate prices and an increase in both availability and variety, heroin’s popularity looks only to increase. In an in-depth CIW Conversation, government officials, medical practitioners and addiction specialists take on the illegal drug that is eating away at the American community.

    What to expect: Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin on addressing his state’s heroin crisis; Kathie Kane-Willis on helping others overcome their heroin addiction; Police Chief Leonard Campanello on offering addicts treatment, not jail; Dr. Carl Hart on the neurology of addiction
