When someone is labeled a “drug user” their identity as an abuse survivor — or as a caring spouse or well-intentioned parent — can be overlooked. That’s particularly true for pregnant women, who “have a lot of guilt and shame on top of the insecurity of being a new mom,” says Laura Lander, an #addiction therapist at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital’s Chestnut Ridge Center and assistant professor at #WVU. See how Lander and other WVU researchers are fighting the #opioid epidemic at our profile link. @wvuhealth

Nearly a year ago, WVU's own Piano Man gave his final faculty performance before retiring. For 55 years, James Miltenberger taught #piano at #WVU. For some alumni, he was the newest member of the music faculty, not much older than they were. And for others, he was one of the most experienced professors with the most stories to tell about #music at WVU. 🎹 @wvucca
