Overdose Prevention & Narcan Training

October 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Free
Learn what an opioid overdose looks like, and how best to respond to it. Learn why Narcan is important, and how to use it.

Opioid overdoses and deaths have reached epidemic proportions. In the wake of this tragedy, The D.O.P.E. Project’s mission is to reduce the number of fatal overdose deaths by providing overdose prevention education and naloxone to drug users, and to their loved ones and service providers. This training will review what an opioid overdose looks like, and how best to respond to it. Attendees will discover why Narcan is important, and how to administer it. Though this is a SF-based training, the information will be useful to attendees beyond the City. D.O.P.E. is a wing of the San Francisco Harm Reduction Coalition.

Instructor: Frances Fu joined Harm Reduction Coalition in 2019 as the D.O.P.E. Project Training and Data Coordinator. In her role, she trains service providers in San Francisco who serve people who use drugs on overdose prevention and education. Prior to joining the D.O.P.E. Project, she worked in San Francisco Chinatown at a movement building organization that organizes, educates, and empowers working-class Chinese immigrant families for economic and social justice. She is a co-founder of the Asian American Drug War Healing Circle, along with Rhana Hashemi, which heals drug war trauma in Asian communities through storytelling, leadership development, and political education. She is the founder and alumni of the Northwestern University chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy, as well as a former board member and staff member with Students for Sensible Drug Policy, where she coached 45 chapter leaders on policy change, training and education, and chapter building. She received a BS in Social Policy from Northwestern University and is currently studying to be a Nutrition Coach at Bauman College. She will graduate in June 2020.

Date: Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. PDT
