Here are just a few of our past events.
The naloxone training went well and WDJB was on hand to talk to Dr. Jimmy and Dr. Stewart.
The UP Foundation of Lynchburg VA in conjunction with Clean Life Medical from Richmond VA are presenting training on how to administer Nasal Naloxone.
Nasal Naloxone is a kit that can be administered to counteract the overdose effects of opiate overdose. It can add life saving minutes to someone who has overdosed on opiates. This allows the EMT’s time to get to the victim and continue to minister life saving aid. Naloxone kits are a valuable community resource to combat the opiate epidemic we are facing in Central Virginia.
The Nasal Naloxone Training will be held
on June 23
From 10 am -12 pm
At The Salvation Army
2215 Park Ave Lynchburg VA
Training is free and open to the public.
The training will be provided by Clean Life Medical. Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to bring a valuable resource to our community. You may just help save someone’s life!
