The DIVAS women’s professional development group met Friday with a change up with the speaker.

The scheduled speaker, Amy Gardner, had to cancel because of an emergency. She had been scheduled to speak about sales. She will be scheduled for a later date.

Cheryl Eversole from the Dallas County Health Department stepped up and gave a speech about the opioid crisis in the nation. Britta Winfrey from the Buffalo Reflex newspaper office is writing an in-depth feature about the speech and the problem local communities face. Watch the Buffalo Reflex to learn more.

Next month’s DIVAS meeting will feature local nonprofit groups, and each group will present how it serves the county. That meeting will be 8 a.m. Friday, July 20, at Expresso Company No. 825 on South Ash Street in Buffalo. 

Looking ahead, state Sen. Sandy Crawford will be the speaker Aug. 17.
