Louisiana lawmakers band together to fight opioid crisis

The Times-Picayune - Louisiana Rep. Helena Moreno never went to medical school. But that didn't stop public health official Dr. Karen DeSalvo from mistaking the New Orleans Democrat for a physician during a recent committee hearing by addressing her as "Dr. Moreno."

DeSalvo immediately realized her mistake as Moreno, a real estate agent, threw her head back in laughter. Still, she didn't retract the title.

"She deserves it," DeSalvo said, praising the legislator's efforts to prevent accidental opioid overdoses.
