The Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC) was mentioned in a Detroit News article last week that pointed to their work with opioids.
“”We’ve seen three years in a row a lowering American life expectancy, and that is due to the amount of deaths are are occurring because of the opioid epidemic. This is unprecedented in U.S. history,” Hargan said at a news conference following the closed-door roundtable. “This is something that has permeated society in a very broad way, in rural communities … to areas like Detroit, to suburban areas — everywhere at this point.”
The article also quotes GDAHC President & CEO, Kate Kohn-Parrot.
