JSS is bringing this important presentation, "Lifesaving with Naloxone", along with Marchese Pharmacy, to professionals in the Jewish community.

We know that 13% of the Canadian population uses legal opioids for pain management, and that opioids caused 2800 deaths of Canadians in 2018. The usage of opioids affects everyone - parents, grandparents, seniors, youth, et cetera. No community is immune,

At this training, you will learn more about the opioid crisis, along with training on naloxone usage (to be used in an overdose situation to save a life). You will also receive 2 naloxone kits, for free.
