    The U.S. Surgeon General will speak at a national summit in Boston focused on police efforts to address the opioid epidemic.

    Dr. Jerome Adams is among the featured speakers at the Police Assisted Addiction & Recovery Initiative's second annual National Law Enforcement Summit.

    The two-day gathering starts Thursday at Harvard Medical School.

    PAARI was founded in 2015 to help support the police department in Gloucester, Massachusetts as it launched a new opioid treatment effort. The organization now also supports similar police efforts nationwide.
