Every day, more than 90 Americans die after overdosing on opioids.1 Narcan is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It can very quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with heroin or prescription opioid pain medications.2
Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the Golisano Gateway Midlevel, to hear different perspectives from five expert panelists, each with vastly different backgrounds: a Community Pharmacist, a Police Officer, a Pharmacy Law/Ethics Professor, a Paramedic, and an RN.
Open to the campus community. RSVP using the link below to register as seating will be limited. Beverages and dessert will be provided.
