Free Seminar About the Fentanyl Crisis

September 16, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free Seminar About the Fentanyl Crisis

In California and nationally, there has been a rise in deaths associated with fentanyl poisoning. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2021 alone, 80,816 people died in the U.S. of overdoses that primarily involved fentanyl, commonly added as a filler to other drug substances, unknown to the buyer, which results in many unintentional fatal overdoses. To deal with this crisis, Huntington Health, an affiliate of Cedars-Sinai, recently launched a free fentanyl education program for the community. Huntington-affiliated emergency department physician Ted Peck, MD, and clinical pharmacist specialist Evan Adintori, PharmD, BCPS, and their community outreach team are spearheading the program, which will offer a free seminar for parents The seminar will cover the dangers of fentanyl, the pervasiveness of the drug in the community and what to do if someone overdoses. They will also provide information about Narcan, a nasal spray used to reverse or reduce the effects of opioids. Training for administering Narcan for fentanyl poisoning will be offered as well.
