Lisa Vasquez, Substance Misuse Prevention Coordinator at Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services and other panelists will discuss the science of Narcan (naloxone), the miracle revival drug that brings overdose victims back to life, and what we need to know about it’s capabilities, application, and limitations.
