Opioid Overdose and Narcan Training
Tuesday, March 16, 2021
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to draw focus, another public health crisis persists. Opioid overdoses continue to be a national problem, and Long Island has some of the highest rates of overdose fatalities in New York State.
This session is an opportunity for unions and community members to come together to address this crisis. Participants will discuss the extent of this public health emergency, learn how to recognize an opioid overdose, and learn to administer naloxone safely. Naloxone can reverse the fatal effects of an opioid overdose and save the life of a loved one.
After you register, you will be provided a link to participate via Zoom or by phone.
