Participants will receive a Project DAWN kit, which includes two doses of Naloxone, a medication that can reverse an overdose that’s caused by an opioid drug.

The meeting will include training on recognizing the signs and symptoms of overdose, distinguishing between different types of overdoses, performing rescue breathing, calling emergency medical services and administering intranasal Naloxone.
