Guest: Holly Fletcher, healthcare reporter
My guest today is Holly Fletcher, healthcare reporter for Nashville’s daily newspaper, The Tennessean. She joins me for an in-depth conversation about the origin of the current opioid crisis and the actions being taken by everyone from the federal government to local health agencies as they try to get a grasp on the situation. She also shares some of the first-hand knowledge she’s gained by listening to a wide array of people who have been affected by this epidemic’s medical, economic and social repercussions.
