The opioid epidemic is currently exacting a terrible toll on the health, lives, safety, and livelihood of persons and communities across Virginia, the Appalachian region, and, indeed,  much of North America. What is being done to address this crisis at the levels of policy and practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and in Charlottesville-Albemarle and environs? In this Medical Center Hour, the Honorable William A. Hazel Jr MD, Secretary of Health and Human Resources for the Commonwealth, discusses Virginia’s five-pronged approach to the epidemic and the impact of that approach to date. He is joined in this conversation by a primary care physician and community mental health professionals.
