To shed light on this epidemic and its impact on American families, Edinboro University’s Social Work Department and the Center for Faculty Excellence is hosting a 5-part viewing and discussion of SHOWTIME’s original “The Trade” – a 5-episode docu-series that spotlights the crises through growers, addicts, cartel bosses and law enforcement.

Several academic departments will host panel discussions regarding the nightly topic from each perspective. The series schedule includes:
