On this episode of Delta Affairs Weekly, we speak with Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation Chief of Staff Ellen Hodges about opioids in the Delta in the aftermath of a series of overdoses and one death in the village of Quinhagak. Hodges came to Bethel in 2002 for the first time and says at that time the idea of heroin in the community was unthinkable.
