Health and DGS host Naloxone Training

Naloxone Train

This month, Director Steve Sharkey was joined by Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen to host a naloxone training for over 100 Baltimore City employees at the War Memorial Building. DGS and the Health Department are partnering to provide naloxone kits in four piloted buildings in the downtown campus. Director Sharkey said, “After hearing Dr. Wen speak about the impact of opioids on our community, I knew DGS had to be a part of the solution and tasked my staff to find ways that we could help.” The increased availability of naloxone will provide an opportunity for DGS and the City to make a proactive stance in fighting the opioid epidemic and increase the availability of the life-saving drug in the downtown area.
