– State Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) on Thursday joined other elected officials, community leaders and drug treatment experts at a forum that focused on the impact of the opioid epidemic among Hazleton’s Latino population. Opioid overdose deaths have declined in Pennsylvania for the first time in five years, yet the death rate among Latinos continues to rise.
