Dr. Bob believes the best way to combat Pennsylvania’s growing opioid epidemic is to understand not only the addiction but the impact on families and loved ones of those hooked on opioids. This is an area where he, unfortunately, has ample knowledge due to the number of people wheeled into his emergency room after overdosing.

By working with the healthcare industry, officials in federal, state, and local governments, and community organizations, Dr. Bob is eager to tackle this epidemic by creating consensus and make informed decisions to curb the devastating impact of opioid abuse throughout the region.
