Penn-wide Virtual Overdose Reversal Training


Welcome! We are excited to offer this free, virtual overdose reversal training to the entire Penn community, uniting students, faculty, health care staff and others around a common goal - to end the overdose epidemic in our communities. Whatever your Penn Medicine entity or UPenn affiliation, we look forward to your participation in this effort.

Trainings are appropriate for persons with no health care background, but are led by trained emergency responders from the University of Pennsylvania and/or Penn Medicine who can answer more advanced questions. Previous BLS training is recommended but not required. During the training, we will present several ways to obtain Narcan (intranasal naloxone), the overdose reversal medication.

Trainings will take place via Zoom from 12pm - 1pm on the first Friday of the month for the duration of Spring 2022.

  • Feb 4, 2022 @ 12pm - 1pm
  • Mar 4, 2022 @ 12pm - 1pm
  • Apr 1, 2022 @ 12pm - 1pm
  • May 6, 2022 @ 12pm - 1pm
