President Donald J. Trump will speak at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta on April 24th at the Rx Abuse and Heroin Summit. Also, First Lady Melania Trump will be in attendance.

Trump has previously declared the opioid crisis a public health emergency, and his administration is spending billions of dollars to fight it.

First lady Melania Trump has called the crisis an illness that “has taken control of our country.”

The Atlanta-based summit, which is in its eighth year, calls itself the largest national collaboration of federal, state and local professionals working to challenge the abuse and misuse of prescription drugs.

It will be the first time President Trump will appear in Atlanta since attending the College Football Playoff National Championship game in 2018.
