This Sunday morning, on KDKA-TV’s “The Sunday Business Page”, with KDKA-TV’s Money & Politics Editor, Jon Delano:

The problem of drug overdose deaths has become a major health crisis – across Pennsylvania. The state legislature and Governor Tom Wolf have now made it easier for first responders to be trained, in administering Narcan to overdose patients, saving their lives. We’ll talk with Washington County District Attorney (D) Eugene Vittone and Janine Valko, RN – Director of the Emergency Department at Monongahela Valley Hospital, about this effort.

Then, a preview of an event that brings athletes from all over the world to Washington, Pennsylvania – the 2015 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pony League World Series – next month. Jeff Kotula —  President of the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency and Washington County Chamber of Commerce – joins us, to discuss the economic impact of the Pony League World Series on this area, and the growing role that tourism is playing, in Washington County’s workforce.

Finally, we’ll introduce you to an organization that is “poised” to help Pittsburgh’s Black community reach its full economic and social potential. Mark S. Lewis – CEO of the Poise Foundation – joins Jon Delano, to talk about this organization’s impressive mission.

One Response

  1. Thank you for mentioning our piece on KDKA. Two minor thoughts, I don’t have Duchenne’s (only males can get that). Muscular Dystrophy is an umbrella term for any muscle wasting condition. Technically I have Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome, COLQ mutation, but for obvious reasons I don’t include all of those titles so Muscular Dystrophy is good enough.
    I also hate to be “one of those people”. I’m sorry, but actually Judy is an amazing person with post-polio syndrome which has caused paraplegia. Generally we prefer to be considered people before diagnoses. So in this type of writing, one may write “Judy Barricella- who has paraplegia from post polio syndrome” or “caused by Polio.”
    Great work on keeping everyone up to date on important information.
