CLEVELAND (AP) - Dozens of high school students from northeast Ohio have been challenged by officials to work together against the heroin crisis plaguing the state.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Medical Examiner’s Office hosted the student leadership summit on Friday to have an open conversation with the teens about the heroin crisis and the future. About 70 students and chaperones attended.

The summit was aimed at educating students, including addressing stigmas that prevent people from getting help.

The panel of experts challenged students to take what they’ve learned and share it with their community by creating content for their school newspapers and social media pages, using the hashtag #HeroinCrisis.
