Jim Derick: Inspiration Through Optimism – Part 2 of 2
This week’s episode of Well Being Walks with Kip Hollister is the second episode of the two-part series with Jim Derick - President and Co-Founder of SAFE Coalition. They walk again through Noon Hill in Medfield, MA; discussing the devastating loss of Jim’s son, Jack, and how to connect with one another and navigate the grieving process. They discuss the stigma around substance abuse disorder and creating a system that supports those affected. Kip and Jim connect on a soul level, bonding over their own journeys with loss and creating an open space for real conversations. This episode is authentic and raw, and we invite you to listen and learn as you join this installation of Well Being Walks.
