This week, the Beloit Public Health Initiative is putting on 2 events to address the opioid epidemic in Rock County: a Narcan training and a community panel. Narcan is an emergency overdose prevention medication and, at our first event, attendees will be trained in how to administer this lifesaving drug. At our panel, attendees will hear from Officer Chad Woodman (head of heroin task force of Janesville PD), Wisconsin House Representative Mark Spreitzer, Jeremy Flanagan (first responder in Beloit), Amanda Isunza (Director of the Sexual Assault Recovery Program), and Dr. Howard Paul (Beloit Health Systems Psychiatrist). Both events are open to students, staff and faculty, and any members of the community. The opioid crisis is on the rise both nationally and particularly in Wisconsin; BPHI encourages everyone who can to attend both or either event to better understand how the epidemic is effecting our community.
