UM BWMC Offers Free Naloxone Training to the Community
UM BWMC is offering free Naloxone training to the community through the Maryland Overdose Response Program. The educational program was created to help stem the rising number of opioid-related deaths in Anne Arundel County and Maryland. The class educates the public on the signs and symptoms of an opiate overdose, and instructs attendees on how to administer Naloxone (also known as Narcan) to someone they believe is suffering from an opioid overdose. Naloxone is an FDA-approved nasal spray that can be used for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. The class is taught by clinical staff at UM BWMC and is held on the medical center campus. September classes will take place on Monday, September 11; Saturday, September 23; and Wednesday, September 27. Registration is required.
