In partnership with the Boone County Overdose Response Coalition, Columbia/Boone County Public Health and Human Services (PHHS) will host a “Save a Life” naloxone education and distribution event from 12 to 1 p.m. Thursday, December 7, at the PHHS Building, 1005 W. Worley St. 

After the event, PHHS staff will be present to provide information and brief training for individual walk-ins from 1 to 1:30 p.m. 

“Save a Life” is a series of monthly, free-to-the-public events that feature education and conversation around how members in the community can help to prevent opioid overdose deaths through the use of naloxone, also known as NARCAN, a drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. 

Both the formal and informal training will include recognizing the signs of an opioid overdose and an explanation of how to use and access naloxone nasal spray, as well. 

Staff time is funded by the Overdose Data to Action contract through the Center for Local Public Health Services within the Department of Health and Senior Services. As a result of our continued partnership with Missouri Institute for Mental Health (MIMH), NARCAN will be available to participants of the event at no cost. 

No registration is required.
