Targeted Prevention takes part in drug awareness health event
Our Targeted Prevention team partnered with the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy and the Salvation Army to attend their first Community Health Event to provide education about signs and symptoms of opioid overdose, naloxone and safe needle practices. We also provided information on cocaine overdose, basic wound care and STI transmission. Staff also conducted HIV and hepatitis C testing at the event. Thank you Marressa Starks-Baker, Lynnsey McGarrh, Kelsi Hernandez, Tenille Allen, Julie Moon and Hailee Reed for taking the time to participate in this much needed event!
