Speaking this morning before business, health care, and community leaders of the state’s Tennessee Business Roundtable in Nashville, Republican candidate Randy Boyd officially unveiled his 10 point plan to fight the state’s alarming opioid epidemic - with specific initiatives focused on mobilization, prevention, and recovery. With Tennessee facing staggering statistics, including an opioid prescription rate of nearly double the national average, Boyd’s plan is a multifaceted approach that better aligns and leverages the work of state, local, and federal partners, while significantly increasing the urgency of efforts already underway. The plan is a product of extensive discussions and collaborations Boyd has had with key law enforcement, medical professionals, community, and faith leaders throughout Tennessee.
