Royal Examiner

RICHMOND – Governor Ralph Northam today announced that the National Governor’s Association (NGA) selected Virginia to participate in a learning lab on state strategies for addressing infectious diseases related to substance use. This learning lab is an opportunity for state officials to receive technical assistance in developing and implementing a strategic action plan for reducing the incidence of infectious diseases related to substance use disorder (SUD), including opioid use disorder.

“The opioid epidemic continues to take a devastating toll on Virginia’s communities,” said Governor Northam. “As a physician myself, I know that to combat this public health crisis, we must approach it from every angle, including finding better ways to reduce the harm from infectious diseases. I appreciate the opportunity from the NGA for Virginia to learn collaboratively, and I look forward to hearing what our officials learn from other states and how we can implement those findings in the Commonwealth.”
