Mom Who Lost 3 Sons Is Hopeful After Trump's Opioid Declaration

The National Institutes of Health is launching a public-private partnership to research and develop non-addictive painkillers.

Providing Labor Department money to fight the cycle of addiction and unemployment in steel mill and coal towns by issuing grants states can use to provide meaningful work that will help people get back on their feet and recover from addiction.

He said it's the worst drug crisis in American history and a problem worldwide. "We owe it to our children and our country to do everything in our power to address this national shame and this human tragedy". Many advocates who favor changing Medicaid rules have also noted that Trump's administration has backed cutting and reshaping Medicaid in a way that would lead to fewer people having coverage overall.

The President pledges to overcome a crisis that kills almost 100 Americans a day - more than gun violence and auto crashes. Afterward, he promised several times to declare opioid abuse a "national emergency".

ANZ Bank lifts cash profit 18% to nearly $7 billion
Fewer products on offer for customers and staff efficiency has helped drive ANZ to a profit of $1.86 billion over the past year. ANZ has also cut its full-time equivalent staff by more than 5,000 people to 44,896, down from 50,152 in 2015.

Trump said his oldest brother, Fred Trump Jr., died of complications of an alcohol addiction.

The declaration follows a bombshell report from The Washington Post and CBS News' "60 Minutes" implicating multiple members of Congress in the passage of a bill that significantly weakened the Drug Enforcement Agency's enforcement capabilities in the opioid crisis in favor of lobbying by pharmaceutical companies.

Opioids range from heroin to prescription pain relievers like OxyContin and Vicodin.

"A nationwide public health emergency will really reorient all of the federal government and executive branch's resources towards focusing on providing relief for this urgent need", an official said.

U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, an Ohio Republican who attended Trump's speech, said he hopes the initiative will lead to "a better coordinated federal response to this crisis".

"I think that maybe I'm the only one, I think that there are a lot of people that have lost two", says Jean McCauley about the unfathomable distinction of losing all three of her sons to opioid overdoses.

Here is what the declarations mean for health IT. "This was an idea that I had, where if we can teach young people not to take drugs - just not to take them", Trump said.
