The Trump administration hosted a White House summit on the opioid epidemic. First lady Melania Trump began the event by reading a letter from a woman who lost her son to an overdose. She was followed by a panel discussion, moderated by White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, with Cabinet secretaries who talked about treatment and prevention initiatives. Ms. Conway then led a second discussion with another group of Cabinet secretaries to address their respective law enforcement efforts to combat the epidemic.
