About the Event
Come join the Central Colorado Humanists as they feature their own CCH members and friends in a variety of science-oriented talks and discussions. Sunday Science covers topics in all areas of science, hard and soft, from psychology to climate change, plant ecology to NASA space missions. It is also a great opportunity to meet fellow Humanists, make new friends, and learn about new ideas. All are welcome!
Sunday Science meets on the first Sunday of the month, from 10:00am to noon.
This Month: Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention
At our next Sunday Science program, Jessica Eaddy, M.S.W. and Mike Orrill will explore methods of preventing prescription drug abuse. This presentation will touch on the science of addiction, national and local statistics, treatment options, myths about the opioid issues, and more.
Jessica Eaddy is the External Relations Strategist for the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention at the University of Colorado.
Mike Orrill is the Regional Health Connector, serving Chaffee, Lake, Fremont, and Custer counties, connecting health and wellness entities with the resources to meet their objectives.

The Central Colorado Humanists promote Humanism, a rational philosophy, informed by science, guided by reason, inspired by nature and art, and motivated by compassion.
CCH affirms the dignity of each human being and support the maximization of individual liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility. They advocate the extension of participatory democracy and the expansion of the open society, standing for human rights and social justice.
