Boosting research will benefit the quality of life for West Virginians and help diversify our economy. We were grateful to work with NIH and WVU to organize this event with 250 attendees from nearly a dozen schools across the state.

HHS Announces Additional Resources to WV to Combat Opioid Crisis
HHS recently announced additional resources to combat the opioid crisis -- including tens of millions for West Virginia, which is ground zero. With these new funds geared toward treatment, prevention, and education of opioid abuse, states across America will be able to advance our strategy and continue making progress against this crisis. Although we need to continue to do more more, this will make a difference.

"Addressing the opioid crisis with every possible resource and the best science we have is a top priority for @POTUS & everyone at @HHSGov. The more than $1B in grants we awarded this week will build on progress we've seen by empowering communities and families on the front lines." - Secretary Alex Azar
