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. Aspects of BLS training are referred to during the training, but previous training is not required. We will also present several ways to obtain Narcan (intranasal naloxone), the overdose reversal medication that has saved thousands of lives.

Please complete the RSVP form below, indicating the date of the training you plan to attend. You will receive an email with the meeting link during the week of the your selected training day.

Trainings will take place via Microsoft Teams from 12pm - 1pm on the first Friday of the month.
