Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levinejoined the governor on the opioid panel discussion."Pennsylvania’s response to the opioid crisis has been called 'a model for the nation' by the American Medical Association," Gov. Wolf said. "While accolades are nice, action and results are better, and we are pleased with the work and the results we've seen so far in this ongoing battle. While the state experienced a decline in overdose deaths last year, we have more work to do."
