Want to save a life? With Naloxone access and training, you can!
Naloxone is a life-saving drug that temporarily reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. The EMHC, Fruit Loop
and E2S — Edmonton 2 Spirit Society
are coordinating free Naloxone training for LGBTQ2S+ community members and service providers, in addition to hospitality and nightlife staff. Other members of the community are welcome to attend as well. No one will be turned away.
The training will be offered by Indigo Harm Reduction, and will take place in the Atrium of the KATZ Group Centre for Pharmacy and Health Research at the University of Alberta. Training will start at 7:00pm sharp (please arrive 15 minutes early for registration) and will last for 1-1.5 hours depending on questions and discussion. Those interested will also have the opportunity to practice their injection skills on an orange so that you can be even more comfortable using your Naloxone kit if the situation ever calls for it. Furthermore, for the first time, we will be giving an introduction to drug testing kits.
To ensure enough spots (and take-home Naloxone kits) are available, please fill out the form at the provided link so that we are aware of numbers. If you have any questions, please email the EMHC at [email protected]
