Doctor lays out $1M plan to prevent, aid opioid abuse


Shelby County Commissioners heard the first steps of a possible plan to combat the opioid epidemic sweeping the county and the state Wednesday. But the first move of the fight has a steep price tag. “I thought this was a good way to start and really look at what’s possible for us to do,” said Heidi Shafer, Commission chairwoman. The Shelby County Commission’s opioid task force welcomed in Dr. David Stern Wednesday morning. Stern serves as Vice-Chancellor for Statewide Initiatives at UT’s Health Science Center.
