Experts: Opioid Crisis Is Hitting Georgia Especially Hard

The nation's deepening opioid epidemic is hitting Georgia harder than most states, experts say. That's one of the messages that came out of a recent conference at the University of Georgia. Some of the highest opioid use is in the Rust Belt and the Southeast, authorities said. Medicaid statistics show high opioid use in parts of southeast Georgia, northwest Georgia and several counties to the north and east of Athens, The Athens Banner-Herald reports . From 2009 to 2014, Georgia's rate of increase in the number of patient encounters related to opioids led the nation, said Michael Crooks of Alliant Quality, a healthcare consulting firm.

Georgia Town Honors Graves Of More Than 1,100 Blacks

Discriminated against in life, they were forgotten by their community in death, buried in unmarked graves in the back of the Alta Vista Cemetery in Gainesville, Georgia. The final resting places of the 1,146 black souls who once lived and worked there were anonymous.

Price, the wife of former U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price, was in a legislative committee meeting Tuesday when she asked a state health official whether people with HIV could legally be quarantined. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Price said Saturday that she was just being "provocative." She said a health official had presented that Georgia is second only to Louisiana in the rate of new infections. Part of the reason is that more than a third of Georgians with HIV are not receiving care for it. She said that's what sparked her "rhetorical" comments. "I do not support a quarantine in this public health challenge and dilemma of undertreated HIV patients," Price said in a statement. "I do, however, wish to light a fire under all of us with responsibility in the public health arena — a fire that will result in resolve and commitment to ensure
