What People Are Saying

Opioid Public Health Crisis Course


"This helped me understand what I can personally do to help my family and others and that the solutions work when all are used, and everyone works together."

"I learned a lot about what contributed to the Opioid Epidemic. I was unfamiliar with statistics that related to the overdose epidemic and they are staggering. I also appreciated learning how Naloxone works in the body and how it reverses effects of an overdose."

"As a public health educator, this course gave me a fantastic overall view of addiction, the opioid crisis (both historically and currently), and how to help."

"I now have a better understanding of efforts the community and I personally can take to help with the opioid and overdose epidemic."
