METROFOCUS: MARCH 19, 2019

March 20, 2019 at 5:30 am

Over the last few years, the New York State Senate Committee on Investigations and Government Operations hasn’t done a lot of investigating. But that’s about to change as its new chair, James Skoufis, sets his sights on prescription drug pricing, so-called slum-lords and maybe even the governor. Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a medical group on Staten Island have partnered on a groundbreaking approach to treating heroin addiction. We have the details on “Death Becomes Us,” NYC’s first festival for the true crime fanatic.

Aired on March 19, 2019.
