Governor Names Jerald Woolfolk to Heroin Task Force

Jerald Woolfolk, vice president for student affairs and enrollment management, is one of 23 professionals named to a statewide heroin task force charged with creating a comprehensive plan to combat the heroin and opioid epidemic in New York.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo launched the task force in May to identify ways to expand awareness of heroin and opioid addiction, enhance statewide prevention efforts, increase access to treatment and improve support for those in recovery.

The group consists of a broad coalition of experts in health care, drug policy, advocacy, and education, as well as parents and New Yorkers in recovery. Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is co-chair. Woolfolk is the only higher education representative on the task force as well as the only member from Central New York.
