Despite recent efforts, the opioid crisis continues to grow in our nation. A report from the National Safety Council revealed that the odds of dying from an accidental opioid overdose surpass the odds of dying from a motor vehicle accident. 

In an effort to combat the growing opioid epidemic, the University of Minnesota Medical School and College of Pharmacy on the Duluth campus joined efforts to produce a Naloxone first aid response training and distribution workshop to improve professional education for the treatment of opioid overdoses.
