Naloxone Action Planning Meeting

Naloxone distribution is an essential intervention to prevent fatal opioid-involved overdoses. This event will explain the why and how to reach the goal of naloxone saturation in Wisconsin. Naloxone saturation is achieved when there is sustainable and equitable access to naloxone for distribution to people who use drugs and people who may witness an opioid overdose. 

All people interested in learning how to improve naloxone distribution in their communities are invited to participate in this free online meeting.

We've partnered with UW-Whitewater's Center for Inclusive Transition, Education, and Employment to host this event.
