Palumbo To Host Prevention Program And Naloxone Training Class

PalumbosmAssemblyman Anthony Palumbo (R,C-New Suffolk) will be hosting an Opioid Overdose Prevention Program and Naloxone Training Class at the Longwood Public Library in Middle Island on Friday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. The program is a joint effort with Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I-East Patchogue), Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and the Suffolk County Department of Health Services.
“The heroin and opioid addiction epidemic continues to threaten our loved ones,” said Palumbo. “While we continue the fight to eradicate this plague in New York State, we are hosting this clinic and others like it across the state to educate individuals on the proper administration of Naloxone, which can be used to help reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.”
This training program teaches attendees how to recognize an opioid overdose and to safely administer the lifesaving drug Naloxone. Each attendee will receive a personal authorization card to possess and administer Naloxone and a Trainer Overdose Responder kit, consisting of two doses of Naloxone.
Registration is required to participate in this training course. To register, contact Jennine Kubik, Executive Assistant, at 631-727-0204 or email kubikj@assembly.state.ny.us.
