Sign Of The Times: Fayette County HD Offering Free Narcan Training

The introduction of naloxone into the body of someone who’s overdosed on opiates can quite literally be a life-saver because within seconds the drug - also known as Narcan - blocks opioid receptors.  The Fayette County Health Department is doing what it can to make sure everybody in our community knows how they can get the drug, and more importantly, how to administer it.  That’s the topic of this week’s edition of Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine.

Dr. Greg recently participated in the health department’s free community training session on naloxone, and after it was over, talked one on one with longtime spokesman Kevin Hall.
