Knowledge and Narcan: Two Ingredients to Save a Life

Posted on 4/17/2017 10:46:50 AM

There is always hopeIn as little as 20 minutes, you can learn techniques to save the life of a loved one, friend, co-worker, neighbor ... anyone ... who is experiencing an overdose caused by prescription narcotics or heroin. This is your last chance to attend Narcan training at IUP before you leave for the summer.

Join Erick Lauber, PhD, applied psychologist and journalism faculty member at IUP, for an interactive demonstration explaining the results of repeated drug use, both neurobiologically and psychologically. He will also discuss both the causes of substance abuse (risk factors), some principles of prevention, and thoughts on community-wide solutions.

Following Lauber’s talk, Tina Hooker, RN, from the Open Door will present Narcan training. All participants will receive a free Narcan kit—the medication that reverses opioid overdose.
