Addiction and Recovery Forum Held with Governor, First Lady and TEDxFargo Speaker Moyers

The FM Area Foundation partnered with Recovery Reinvented and the Office of the First Lady of North Dakota to host an addiction and recovery forum with 2019 TEDxFargo speaker William Moyers on July 24 in Fargo.

Governor Doug Burgum, First Lady Kathryn Burgum and Moyers held a discussion about challenges communities face in tackling addiction and how addiction recovery service providers can collaborate to end the stigma of the disease of addiction. More than 40 service providers attended the event to learn, network and engage.  

Moyers is the vice president of public relations and community affairs for the Minnesota-based Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and a New York Times best-selling author of “Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption.”
