Community Narcan Training: Combat the Opioid Crisis

March 8, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Philadelphia is facing the greatest public health crisis in a century. Every neighborhood in the city is being hit hard by an epidemic of opioid use and overdose.

All are invited to attend this FREE Informative NARCAN training on March 8. A lifesaving drug, Narcan (naloxone) temporarily blocks the effect of opioids and helps a person to start breathing again. It is easy to use and available to anyone in Pennsylvania.

Registration is required. To register, click here.

At this free training, you’ll learn about what the Philadelphia Mayor’s Task Force to Combat the Opioid Epidemic is doing to help people and strengthen the communities hit hardest. Come learn from two experts on the opioid crisis: Dr. Jeffrey Hom, Policy Advisor for the Philadelphia Department of Health, and Beverly Woods, Assistant Deputy Managing Director for Health and Human Services for the City of Philadelphia. They will offer an engaging and informative presentation on the opioid crisis in our city, followed by training in the use of the lifesaving drug, Narcan.

Pre-registration is required; lunch will be provided.
