Event description

Description

UM BWMC is offering free Maryland Overdose Response Program classes to help educate the public on the signs and symptoms of an opiate overdose. The Overdose Response Program is part of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s strategy to reduce overdose deaths. The class also instructs attendees on how to administer Naloxone (also known as Narcan) to someone they believe is suffering from an opioid overdose. Naloxone is an FDA-approved nasal form spray that can be used for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. Class attendees will also learn how to respond after administering Naloxone, tips to prevent overdose and community resources for family and friends.

Classes are held in two different rooms within the medical center, depending on the day of the week. All Saturday classes will be held in the Courtney Conference Center on the eighth floor of the medical center. All other classes are held in the Dr. Constantine Padussis Conference Center, located on the third floor of the medical center.
