Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Lake Superior Medical Society has made its mission to enhance public health through education.

Since its creation in 1886 community issues have ranged from public sewer systems to communicable disease prevention.

125 years later the Society continues to "make a difference" by focusing on the dangers of synthetic drugs and their impact on our community.

With encouragement from the Lake Superior Medical Society a local doctor and a film maker agreed to produce a documentary called "Ground Zero: Duluth's Battle Against Synthetic Drugs."

The documentary takes an in-depth and eye opening look at the issue.

The Lake Superior Medical Society will host a community debut of its documentary during a panel discussion at Clyde Iron Works on Monday, June 24th at 7 p.m.
