This week, Governor Wolf announced the implementation of 25 additional Centers of Excellence to continue his administration’s top priority of fighting the current opioid abuse epidemic plaguing Pennsylvania. The Governor, joined by Department of Human Services Secretary Ted Dallas, also visited healthcare facilities in Reading and Lackawanna County that have been selected as Centers of Excellence to treat individuals suffering from Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). He also announced $2 million in funding for the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown (UPJ) to help complete the campus’ new chemical engineering program aimed at ensuring career-ready candidates for emerging industries in the region.

Governor Wolf also joined Wegmans executives at the Mechanicsburg Wegmans location to toast the kick off of Act 39 liquor reforms by purchasing the first bottle of wine to go at Wegmans in Pennsylvania.

Earlier in the week, the governor expressed his support and thanks for Fayette county responders and residents as they work through the challenges caused by serious flooding. Governor Wolf, joined by other elected officials, toured Connellsville on Friday to see the flood damage.
