Bucks County Commissioner Recognized for Work in Substance Abuse Prevention
Bucks County Commissioner Gene DiGirolamo has been recognized for his work in substance abuse prevention by the Commonwealth Prevention Alliance with its “Embodies Amazing” award, writes Jeff Werner for the Newtown Patch.
DiGirolamo was presented with the award during a CPA event that was part of Prevention Week.
“There may not be a more important and pressing issue in our time than the epidemic of opioids that has been a relentless scourge on our communities both here in Bucks County, and all across our country,” said DiGirolamo.
But thanks to “so much good work being done on prevention by so many dedicated people all throughout the Commonwealth, I am just truly humbled and honored to accept this recognition,” he added.
DiGirolamo is a champion of prevention and recovery both during his time as a state representative and now as a Bucks County commissioner.
Two more Bucks County officials were recognized during the same event: Prevention Supervisor Mallory Perrotti, of the Bucks County Drug and Alcohol Commission, and Prevention Specialist David Fialko, from the Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
They were also recognized with “Embodies Amazing” awards.
