Millennium Fellowship Project: Narcan Now - An Opioid Overdose Reversal Training Program
Narcan Now is the product of a collaboration between Penn Medicine and the University of Pennsylvania Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT), the campus's student-run, volunteer EMS agency. Hosting monthly, virtual opioid overdose reversal trainings open to the entire Penn community, we plan to train hundreds of laypeople about the opioid crisis, opioid overdoses, and how to reverse them using intranasal naloxone (Narcan). Through these sessions, we hope to equip an army of potential overdose responders in Philadelphia with the skills and resources to intervene in such emergencies.
