HDA's Gray Calls for Systemic Response to Opioid Abuse in Op-Ed


Posted in

In an op-ed published in the Capitol Hill newspaper, The Hill, HDA President and CEO John M. Gray noted that a commitment and robust effort from all supply chain stakeholders are necessary to help mitigate the nation’s opioid abuse epidemic. Mr. Gray also recognized the critical role of primary pharmaceutical distributors, who stand ready to be part of the solution.

“All of us in healthcare, without exception, play a role in addressing this epidemic,” said Gray. “Such a task cannot fall to one sector alone. We must marshal our collective resources, learn from the past, and look to the future to end the opioid epidemic.”
