Governor Wolf Announces Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Prescribing Guidelines

Temple University, Edberg – Olson Football Complex, 1001 Diamond Street, Philadelphia, PA

Governor Wolf will announce and host a roundtable discussion at Temple University on the opioid prescribing guidelines for orthopedic and sports medicine.

Prescribing guidelines are a crucial part to the Wolf Administration’s battle against the opioid crisis in Pennsylvania. Governor Wolf and his administration have partnered with health care professionals in the orthopedic and sports medicine to reduce the overprescribing of opioids as way towards reducing opioid abuse in one of the highest-risk groups – people who seek medical care due to injuries.
