1. SOUNDBITE (English) Melania Trump, US First Lady:
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of you for all you are doing on this very important issue. As many of you are aware, a big part of my 'Be Best' campaign focuses on opioid abuse and the effects it has on children. Over the last year and a half, I have learned a great deal about Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome through visits such as these."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Melania Trump, US First Lady:
"There are few things harder to bear than seeing a newborn suffer and I am anxious to do all that I can to help shine a light on this epidemic. I am proud of the administration's continued efforts in fighting opioid addiction."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Melania Trump, US First Lady:
"I am also excited to learn about the recommendations the national experts make on the elements needed to build a national NAS (Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome) tracking system, which is being developed by the Department of Health and Human Services. By using existing technology and working with both the medical and technology communities to develop and launch the effort, I know the tracking system will help save lives."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Melania Trump, US First Lady:
"I look forward to learning about the recommendations that will come from today's meeting. Thank you all and God Bless the United States of America." (applause)
