I was joined today by #VT Health Commissioner Mark Levine to announce a $9.5M CDC grant to VT Health Dept to strengthen our state’s response to opioid overdoses. This is why I fought for more funding for CDC to step up response to this public health crisis. @healthvermont
This $9.5M CDC grant leahy.senate.gov/press/leahy-an… will provide clients with provide stronger case management and risk reduction to help them better navigate treatment for opioid use, and to support their connection to mental health and recovery services. @healthvermont
Bennington, Rutland, Windham and Windsor Counties will receive community action grants to prevent opioid overdoses in areas with high fatality rates. This is one of many strategies supported with the $9.5M CDC grant to the #VT Health Dept that I announced today. @healthvermont

We think and plan a lot about the future of Vermont’s economy. Yesterday after touring an #organic dairy farm in Fairfield, Marcelle and I visited Liquid Measurements Systems, a growing aerospace firm in Georgia, #VT. @LMS_VT recently hired 3 engineers who relocated to #VT
.@LMS_VT competes on a global scale with its sensor products. These support cutting-edge aircraft like the #X59, Lockheed Martin’s partnership w/@NASA to build a supersonic aircraft. Thru 30 years this #SmallBusiness has supplied both commercial and military aerospace sectors.
The variation of these two enterprises is part of the beauty and strength of our state. #Vermont will have a vibrant future if we protect our agricultural heritage, and expand our manufacturing and tech sectors.

Great to visit Stony Pond Farm in Enosburg Falls w/ @organicvalley. Tyler and Melanie Webb are leaders in the organic movement and proving that farmers can address the ecological challenges we face while also making a viable living.
30 years ago, I wrote the nation’s 1st organic farming bill. The explosive growth of the sector has been a bright spot for agriculture. Now we must protect the industry so it can continue to support the viability of #VT’s hardworking producers like the Webbs.
Thank you Tyler and Melanie for hosting me on your organic farm. The creativity and energy you bring to farming is helping your business grow and helping Vermont’s agricultural sector adapt in challenging times.

In Springfield today to announce more than $7.9 million in grants from @NBRC_Team to boost job growth in #VT. These funds will help grow our workforce, repair our infrastructure & give Vermont workers new skills for the modern economy.
We chose Springfield for this announcement because of @BRICvt. Their coworking & incubation space, & goal of growing startups in VT, is the type of project I had in mind when I expanded NBRC in the #FarmBill so all of VT would be eligible. They are receiving a $235k grant.
Federal grants will support the redevelopment of Main St in @Winooskivt, infrastructure in Newport, Burke, St. Albans & Randolph. Childcare & workforce efforts supported by @LetsGrowKids & @VTRoundtable.

Today @SenDavidPerdue and I introduced a bill to renew and expand the #FarmToSchool program with @SenSherrodBrown & @SenSusanCollins. leahy.senate.gov/press/leahy-an…
Our bipartisan Farm to School Act will increase federal funds that help bring fresh, local foods to schools across the country and will educate students on where their food comes from.
The #FarmToSchool Program has helped make #VT a national leader in pairing local farms and local schools. leahy.senate.gov/press/leahy-an…

On #MemorialDay we rededicate ourselves to honoring the service of the nation’s men and women in uniform, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for us and for our nation.
I’m so proud to represent the many brave Vermonters who serve in their communities and far from home, and I’m sharing some reflections about those who gave their lives so that others might live. #MemorialDay

A few drug companies are hurting patients by using unfair practices to keep drug prices artificially high. Today I reintroduced my bipartisan #CREATES Act to remove these obstacles & end these unfair practices, helping patients & families, & saving taxpayers $3.9 billion.
Thanks to my #CREATES Act cosponsors in the Senate who are working hard to keep down prescription drug prices. @ChuckGrassley, @SenAmyKlobuchar, @SenMikeLee & many others. Completely bipartisan. Read HERE about this important bill: leahy.senate.gov/press/020519cr…
I’m proud to fight for Vermont patients, families and seniors by reintroducing my #CREATES Act, which is why I’m delighted that @PeterWelch is a cosponsor of the bill in the House, and that we have support of #VT organizations like @AARPVT.

Long before the #TrumpShutdown began, Donald Trump, as a candidate, and then as President, resorted to fear, cynicism and misinformation for personal and political gain.
There is a crisis in America, but it is not the crisis the President wants us to believe. It is a crisis he’s caused, felt right now at the kitchen tables of American families who are trying to figure out how they will make ends meet and pay their bills. #TrumpShutdown
Dozens of Vermonters have contacted my office to urge the President and Republican leaders in the Senate to stop playing politics with their lives and reopen the federal government. #TrumpShutdown Read their stories HERE: leahy.senate.gov/press/011019da…

Each of the interns in my paid internship program has a “one-on-one day” to follow me and see exactly what goes into representing VT. Today Nina will be tweeting about her day from my account. I secured funds in this years approps bills to pay ALL congressional interns.
This is Nina taking over Senator Leahy’s twitter for today. I’m from Waterbury, VT and study political science and environmental science @AmericanU. It looks like we have a busy day ahead of ourselves!
The Senator skyped with AP Gov’t students from Spaulding High School in Barre. Senator Leahy enjoys talking with students across #VT about civic engagement. Great to be discussing political participation with young people!

Today I will be shadowed by my intern Kiernan, who will also be tweeting photos of his day from this account. My paid internship program is one of the best on Capitol Hill. If you are interested, apply by tomorrow, Nov. 16, HERE: leahy.senate.gov/services/inter…
[Kiernan] Today I’ll be shadowing Senator Leahy as part of my paid internship. I’m from beautiful @MorrisvilleVT and study political science at @AmericanU. Excited for a busy day as the Senator meets with constituents, committees, dignitaries, and advocates.
[Kiernan] Starting off the day in a @senjudiciary executive business meeting where the Senator spoke out against Trump’s installation of Whitaker as Acting AG. The Committee also reported #Vermont’s US Marshal nominee Brad LaRose for a vote on the Senate floor unanimously.

Disappointed that @SenatorCarper’s amendment to create a new Wood Heater Emissions Reductions grant program failed on a party-line vote in @EPWGOP. Just delaying the regulatory timeline is not enough. We must do more to help manufacturers and homeowners, in VT and other states.
#VT is one of the top states per capita for primary wood heating & for wood stove emissions. The problem is not new stoves sold today, but older dirtier stoves still in use. The rebate program @SenatorCarper proposed is WHAT WE NEED to help Vermonters upgrade to cleaner stoves.
I strongly support efforts to incentivize the purchase of new wood stoves that are cleaner-burning, use less fuel, and reduce energy costs. @EPWDems @EPWGOP @American_Heart @LungAssociation @HPBA_ @veic should make putting new, cleaner stoves in homes a top priority.

Topic - Ventricular Tachycardia!

Agenda:
1- Approach to evaluating #VT
2- Management of #VT
3- Practice Cases

Please share your thoughts & input to this #tweetorial!

@ACCCardioEd @ACCinTouch #FOAMed @MichiganACC
#FITSurvivalGuide #ACCFIT
1/10 – Ventricular Tachycardia
Simplified approach to evaluate tachycardia:
Rule #1 – If HD unstable ➡️ shock!

If HD stable, sit down & think.
Step # 1 - QRS: wide or narrow?
Step # 2 - Rhythm: regular or irregular?

This will narrow DDx!
#FITSurvivalGuide #ACCFIT
2/10 - Wide complex tachycardia

Always consider clinical Scenario!
Look for history of MI and cardiomyopathy ➡️ strongly favor #VT!

* If structural heart disease is present, you will be correct 9/10 times with diagnosis of VT!

Yesterday the @TimesArgus published a story about the senseless murder of Courtney Gaboriault at the hands of her abusive ex-boyfriend. This fundamentally flawed article demands a formal response. #btv #vt #vtpoli timesargus.com/articles/offic…
Despite the headline, the @timesargus spends considerable space glorifying a domestic abuser and murderer, and dismissing his victim as an afterthought. And let’s be clear: He is no victim. #btv #vt #vtpoli
The first mention in the story of a human being is of the killer, in the lede, referring to him in positive terms. #btv #vt #vtpoli
