Half the Victory: Preparing for the Opioid Crisis
Wednesday, November 3, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Miguel de Cervantes wrote “To be prepared is half the victory.”
Join Kevin King to learn how the Kalamazoo Public Library (KPL) took a proactive approach to preparing for opioid overdoses in the library.
In less than a year, KPL staff learned about the liability laws regarding life-saving overdose drugs (Naloxone), lobbied to change those laws, hosted a “Drug Take-Back Day,” joined a county-wide task force on the issue, and organized overdose awareness training and administration of Naloxone for the staff.
Participants will gain the knowledge they need to begin a plan to address the opioid crisis in their library and turn a partial victory, into a life-saving win.
The recording will be posted in the CALL Academy.
