Bemidji State University to host opioid awareness and Narcan training Nov. 3
October 28, 2022
Bemidji State University will host an opioid awareness and Narcan training event Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. on campus in Hagg-Sauer Hall 150.
Andrea Herold, an educator from Rural AIDS Action Network and recovering opioid addict, will teach attendees how to recognize and respond to signs of an overdose, including administering naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, to reverse the reaction. The training is part of BSU’s National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week activities.
Narcan kits and training are available locally for free at Face It Together Bemidji thanks to a partnership between RAAN and the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
There is no cost to attend and the event is open to the public.
