Gov. Baker's Opiod Listening Session at MA State House
April 2, 2015
The working group, established by Gov. Charlie Baker, is chaired by Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders and charged with developing a statewide strategy to combat opioid addiction. The group held the final of four public listening sessions at the Statehouse. The first three - in Greenfield, Worcester and Plymouth - drew a combined 1,000 attendees. Baker, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito and Attorney General Maura Healey joined task force members in listening to a litany of heartbreaking stories and pleas for more treatment beds, better insurance coverage and more education.
