NYMC Participates in Anti-Opioid Campaign

June 16, 2017

Robert W. Amler, dean of the New York Medical College’s School of Health Sciences and Practice and the college’s vice president for government affairs, was among the 200 community, educational, and government leaders who gathered at the Westchester County Center on June 7 to begin an initiative to combat opioid abuse. It’s called “Westchester Opioid Response Teams Helping You (WORTHY).” Westchester County Health Commissioner Sherlita Amler, who also is an associate professor at NYMC and married to Robert Amler, told the gathering, “There is no room on the sidelines in the fight against opiate addiction….We need the help of our partners to change the lives of the mothers and fathers, sons and daughters with opiate addictions.”
