UnityPoint Health® - Grinnell Regional Medical Center is participating with the Iowa Healthcare Collaborative (IHC) to host an opioid guardianship meeting for our community regarding the increasing opioid dependency.

The meeting will be Monday, May 21, from 12-1:00 p.m. at the Elks Lodge, 720 3rd Ave., Grinnell. Cookies and refreshments will be provided. This meeting is free and open to the public; community members including patients, families and health care professionals are invited to join in the discussion during this event.
