“Wisconsin hospitals and health systems are on the front lines of Wisconsin’s heroin and opioid abuse epidemic. We applaud Governor Walker for the creation of the Governor’s Task Force on Opioid Abuse and appreciate his recognition of the role Wisconsin’s hospitals have in this important conversation. Much has been accomplished through Representative John Nygren’s HOPE Agenda and Attorney General Brad Schimel’s Dose of Reality campaign, but more can and should be done. We look forward to serving on the Governor’s Task Force on Opioid Abuse and identifying solutions to Wisconsin’s heroin and opioid abuse epidemic.”
