Statewide Standing Order for Life-Saving Drug

This week Pennsylvania became one of a small number of states with a standing order for Naloxone.  Naloxone can reverse a heroin overdose and has been credited with savings hundreds of Pennsylvanians already this year.  The standing order, signed by PA Physician General Rachel Levine on Thursday, allows any citizen to walk into a drug store in the state and ask for the life-saving drug.  Every major drug store chain in the state had agreed to stock the drug and honor the standing order. 

Welcome Henry!
