LEGISLATOR GAYLOR TO HOST NARCAN TRAINING/OVERDOSE PREVENTION WORKSHOP

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Temple Am Echad – 1 Saperstein Plaza, Lynbrook

 

You can save the life of a loved one from overdose!

 

Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose. And those are only the ones we know of – the ones directly caused by heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone.  If you don’t think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again.  Overdoses can happen to anyone.


Legislator C. William Gaylor III is sponsoring this event along with the Nassau County Office of Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and Developmental Disabilities to help residents learn what to do in case of an overdose. All attendees will learn how to administer the life-saving, overdose-reversal agent called Naloxone, or “NARCAN.”  NARCAN is the antidote to an opioid overdose and all attendees will receive a free kit.


Seating is limited and reservations are required  


To reserve your seat and free NARCAN kit, please contact Legislator Gaylor’s office:

516-571-6206   -   cwgaylor@nassaucountyny.gov
