If you'll be in Portland and work on overdose prevention, we need your help. Here's how DOPE Project's Eliza Wheeler describes it:
Want to participate or get more information? Copy this flyer and give us a call in Portland!We are hoping to take advantage of so many of you being at the conference to collect video testimony about naloxone shortages and price increases and how they are affecting overdose prevention programs.The idea is to collect short (e.g. 2-3 min each) video interviews with people from around the county who either run naloxone distribution projects or who desire to do so, and whose work has been impacted by price & availability issues. Format would be roughly along the lines of the "I'm the Evidence" videos. If anyone is interested in participating and being interviewed about the impact this is having on your community, please let us know. The project is being organized by Matt Curtis, Fred Wright, Greg and Erin Scott and I and came about through conversations in the Naloxone Overdose Prevention and Education (NOPE) Working Group. The video will hopefully be a valuable tool for advocacy for expanded access to naloxone.
