Coming up this week on WNED PBS!

Concrete Gridiron | Preview

Half hour documentary about the first wheelchair football league in Buffalo, NY. The league is a part of a the national league, sponsored by the NFL Foundation and the Bob Woodruff Foundation. The team is made up of athletes who live with disabilities. Each player has a different story. Many, like David Cross have served our country. Cross was injured while in the military. He was hit by an IED, and lost his leg as a result. "I can only play physical sports," he said. "I tried golf, it was too boring. Getting out there and playing competitively is everything to me." For U.S Veteran Carrie Frank, playing sports has provided her purpose. "When you're able to play stand-up sport for such a long time, and then you can't, you have to forgive sport and then you have to drive on," she said. "Without the Greater Adaptive Buffalo Sports Program, we wouldn't be able to do this as adults." The team was assembled last season by Norm Page, the President of the Greater Buffalo Adaptive Sports Program. The team will play against 11 other teams across the country this season, in two separate tournaments in Chicago and Salt Lake City. While these players hope to come home with a trophy, the ability to play this sport is a priceless gift players like Carrie Frank say has saved their lives. Watch Monday, February 6 at 9pm.

Overdose Epidemic

FEBRUARY 13- 19

Overdose Epidemic

You've heard the statistics. They may even come close to home as many across New York State struggle with an addiction to painkillers, heroin, or other opioids. Buffalo Toronto Public Media is raising awareness of the opioid epidemic through special reports and programs.

7 Days: The Opioid Crisis

All it takes for someone to become dependent on opioids is seven days of use. Legal prescriptions have paved the way for the addiction epidemic plaguing the United States. 7 Days is an empathic, delicate look at some of the individuals who have become the face of this national tragedy. Taking a macro perspective on the issue, the film explores how addiction is rarely a choice, but a vicious cycle that preys on the disenfranchised and underserved.

Covid-19 and the Overdose Epidemic | Preview

Since it began in March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a staggering number of fatalities and illnesses across New York State. The economic and social disruptions stemming from the pandemic have added to the devastation. While healthcare systems were overwhelmed, individuals most at risk for substance abuse and addiction were isolated and cut off from resources, and many healthcare providers were unable to provide uninterrupted care. This hour, Evan Dawson hosts a state-wide discussion with medical experts, government officials, non-profit organizations, and New York residents about how the pandemic and the response have exacerbated the ongoing overdose epidemic. We also explore what is being done to shore up the gaps in care and the ways in which the pandemic has generated more flexible and effective means of reaching those in need. Watch Thursday, February 16 at 8pm on WNED PBS.
