A free, public screening of the Oscar-nominated documentary, Heroin(e), was hosted at the University of Charleston on Thursday.

The 39-minute film follows the efforts of three women in Cabell County as they battle the state's opioid epidemic on the front lines.

Following the screening, attendees were invited to participate in a panel discussion.

The discussion was led by the filmmaker and director Elaine McMillion Sheldon and included the three women the film follows: Huntington Fire Chief Jan Radar, Cabell County Judge Patricia Keller, and Necia Freeman of Brown Bag Ministry.

Earlier on Thursday, a private screening of the documentary took place at the Governor's Mansion for state lawmakers. That showing was followed by a panel discussion with Judge Keller and Necia Freeman.
