Governor Wolf Stops in Western PA to Discuss Combatting Opioid Abuse (Round-Up)

first_img Round-Up,  Substance Use Disorder,  The Blog Yesterday, Governor Wolf made stops in western PA to discuss efforts to continue the fight against the epidemic of opioid abuse in the Commonwealth.In Pittsburgh, Governor Wolf and former Pittsburgh Steeler Franco Harris hosted a press conference to discuss the Wolf Administration’s new opioid prescribing guideline recommendations for orthopedics and sports medicine.“These new guidelines are a crucial part of our battle against the opioid crisis in Pennsylvania,” said Governor Wolf. “By partnering with health care professionals in the fields of orthopedics and sports medicine to reduce the overprescribing of opioid painkillers, we are working to reduce opioid abuse in one of the highest-risk groups – people who seek medical care due to injuries.”In the afternoon, the governor was in Ebensburg, Cambria County to host a roundtable discussion on opioid abuse in local communities. The discussion was attended by local leaders and law enforcement and focused on their perspectives to best continue the fight against opioid abuse.Combatting the opioid abuse epidemic continues to be a top priority for Governor Wolf and his administration.“Since becoming Governor, I’ve travelled around the commonwealth hearing stories from parents, friends, first responders, and community members about their firsthand experience with people who have fallen prey to this crisis,” said Governor Wolf. “We must continue to use every tool in our tool box to combat this crisis, and help those who are suffering from substance use disorders.”Take a look at the coverage below: Post-Gazette: Opioid addiction is a problem for athletes, and Pennsylvania has a planGov. Tom Wolf, flanked by Pro Football Hall of Famer Franco Harris and some of the leading doctors in the state, announced new guidelines Thursday meant to combat the number of overdose deaths from opioids that continue to escalate across the state. “This is a really important issue,” Wolf said Thursday at a news conference at UPMC Montefiore, spelling out the Pennsylvania Orthopedic Society’s guidelines for opioid prescriptions. “I’m not sure there is anyone in Pennsylvania who hasn’t known someone with an opioid addiction.”Tribune Democrat: WATCH VIDEO: ‘Take back our community’: Wolf, local leaders discuss opioid crisisGov. Tom Wolf sat down with a packed room of Cambria County leaders Thursday and started a roundtable discussion with a simple question about broad, far-reaching problem. “What can we at the state level do to help you battle this (opioid) epidemic?” he asked. During a 30-minute meeting inside a Central Cambria High School classroom, Cambria County elected officials, law enforcement officers and educators from the county’s rural central region had no shortage of suggestions.Altoona Mirror: Opioids focus of Wolf meetingCambria County Coroner Jeff Lees told Gov. Tom Wolf that when he talks to families of overdose victims, he learns they became addicted at a young age. Last year Wolf signed laws limiting the amount of prescription opioids prescribed to children because research has found abuse of prescription opioids leads to heroin addiction. That’s one of the actions being taken to address Pennsylvania’s opioid problem that kills hundreds in Pennsylvania each year.Associated Press: State’s orthopedic doctors introduce new opioid guidelinesDemocratic Governor Tom Wolf was at UPMC Montefiore in Pittsburgh on Thursday for the announcement of the new standards, which were designed to curb abuse of the powerful painkillers.

Married men healthier than women

first_imgNZ Herald 13 June 2015Marriage has long been said to be good for health. Now, however, a study has suggested that while married men are healthier than their single counterparts, women hardly benefit from tying the knot.Research by University College London, the London School of Economics and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine found single women did not suffer the same negative health effects as unmarried men.In fact, middle-aged women who had never married had virtually the same chance of developing metabolic syndrome – a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity – as their married counterparts.Although single women showed slightly higher levels of a biomarker signifying a greater risk of breathing problems, it was far lower than levels in unmarried men. The same was true of a biomarker for heart problems which was raised 14 per cent in single men but was barely noticeable in unmarried women.Harry Benson of the Marriage Foundation pointed out that there was more to marriage than health benefits.“The whole point of marriage is to affirm commitment that couples make for their own stability and for the benefit of their children,” he said.“Married parents are far more likely to stay together, independent of age or education. Whether marriage makes couples healthier is neither here nor there.”A major study in 2011 found that being married lowered the risk of premature death by 15 per cent. World Health Organisation research in 2010 found marriage could reduce the risk of anxiety and depression.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11464465last_img read more


Okagbare Takes on Thompson, Ahoure in Paris Diamond League

first_img*Chases first sub-11 seconds 100m run in two yearsReigning Nigeria speed queen, Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor, will be hoping to legally race inside 11 seconds in the 100m event for the first time in two years at the Meeting De Paris, the seventh leg of the money-spinning IAAF Diamond League meetings on Saturday at the Parc de Prince Stadium in Paris.The Nigerian, dethroned as African 100m champion without putting up a fight last year in Durban, South Africa has been struggling for form since she finished last in the 100m (11.02 seconds) in the final of the IAAF World Championships on August 24, 2015 in Beijing, China. Last year she failed to legally run a sub-11 seconds in the blue ribband event as her 10.92 seconds finish on July 18 in at the Sóstói Stadion in Székesfehérvár, Hungary was aided by a +2.6 metres per second trail wind.The last time she ducked inside 11 seconds was on September 3 last year at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in Zurich where she ran 10.98 seconds.This year the Nigerian holds an 11.16 seconds personal season best and will be hoping to better this mark by breaking 11 seconds on Saturday in Paris, a ground she will fondly remember for some spectacular performances.It was at the Meeting De Paris that she ran her 10.80 seconds, her second fastest 100m time ever. She was second in the race behind Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (10.74 seconds) just two years ago.In 2013 she also came second behind Fraser-Pryce at the same meeting, losing by the narrowest of margins (10.92 to 10.93 seconds) while a year later she ran her second fastest time over 200m (22.32) at the meeting.On Saturday, the Moscow 2013 IAAF Worlds double medallist will be hoping the presence of reigning World and Olympic 100m queen, Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson and Murielle Ahouré, the Ivorian who dethroned her as African champions at the starting block can propel her back to form and reckoning at the 16th IAAF World Championships in London in August.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
