Opioid Epidemic

The opioid epidemic is a very vibrant issue right now in the United States. On an average day in the U.S, more than 650,000 opioid prescriptions are dispensed. On top of that, on average 78 people a day die a day from an opioid related death. That means that there are roughly 28,470 deaths per year from people who have overdosed on opioids. It seems that I can’t even turn on my TV to watch the news without hearing about another death. In the state of Michigan alone, there are more annual opioid prescreptions than there are people.

Put an END to Vaccine Refusal

Since the inception of modern-day medicine and vaccinations, there has always been a skeptical group who maintain the belief that vaccines are money making schemes that are doing more harm than good. This ignorant group refuses to acknowledge the millions of people who are saved from deadly diseases every year due to proper vaccination. Unfortunately, this refusal not only endangers themselves, but also exposes vaccinated individuals to outbreaks like measels and polio.

School Nurses

In a recent article in Bridge Magazine, Ron French writes about a severe shortage of school nurses in Michigan. French claims that almost half of Michigan's students attend a school without a nurse, and that Michigan's ratio of studeents to nurses is the 3rd highest of any state.
