Training Opportunity: Naloxone Training and Distribution

PROJECT DAWN (DEATHS AVOIDED BY NALOXONE) is a community-based overdose education and naloxone distribution program, sponsored by the Ohio Dept. of Health. Project DAWN participants receive training on:

  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of overdose
  • Distinguishing between different types of overdose
  • Performing rescue breathing
  • Calling emergency medical services
  • Administering intranasal Naloxone

Symposium attendees are invited to attend a Project Dawn training session and receive a naloxone kit at a special session to be held at 1:30 p.m., (after the symposium luncheon). Naloxone is a medication that can reverse an overdose caused by an opioid drug. Communities are arming citizens with these kits in an effort to provide an accessible way for citizens to save the life of someone experiencing an overdose.
