USG Hosts Narcan Training, Overdose Prevention Workshop

Narcan supplies

BROOKLYN COLLEGE — On Thursday, March 14, the Undergraduate Student Government hosted a “Narcan Training Event” in Brooklyn College’’s Student Center. The purpose of the event was to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to administer Naloxone Hydrochloride, also known as Narcan, a life-saving medication used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose.

The signs of an overdose include if the person is drowsy, passes out, having difficulty breathing, and has unusually small pupils. To the organizers of the event, hosting this workshop stemmed out of mutual aid campaigns working to provide citizens access to the drug.
