SORT BY Relevancy
"Deaths from drug overdose have been rising steadily over the past two decades and have become the leading cause of injury death in the United States. Every day in the United States,113 people die as a result of drug overdose." CDC
The facts don't lie and losing lives to unnecessary overdoses is beyond tragic.
Which is why, providing overdose prevention and response education to drug users and their family and friends, is a harm reduction tool that we are clearly in need of today; not only for the person at risk of overdosing but for their family and friends as well.
Joining me today, to talk about overdoses, the benefits of Naloxone (a medication that reverses opioid overdose) and overdose prevention is Dr. Sharon Stancliff - an internationally known expert on opioid overdose prevention and Medical Director at the Harm Reduction Coalition.
Youth violence is a public health issue impacting individual youth as well as entire communities. Homicide is the third leading cause of death for young people in our country.

On this episode of Spotlight on Youth, guests will discuss the goals and outcomes of youth violence prevention, the collaboration, strategic planning, and evidence-based programs used to support prevention planning, and provide guidance to other communities interested in integration of violence prevention into public health efforts.
