The executive director of the Steve Rummler HOPE Network trained Fargo Cass Public Health, a group of North Dakota residents and professionals, how to recognize and prevent an opioid overdose. Similar to other communities, prescription opioid and heroin deaths have become a grim reality for Fargo, ND. Lexi continues to propel the mission of the HOPE Network, expanding the borders of our overdose prevention program – saving lives is the epitome of our existence.
After the training, she was ecstatic to share her gratitude,
“Thank you Fargo Cass Public Health! It was an honor and a privilege to share SRHF’s overdose prevention education. I’m so grateful for all the individuals who made attending a priority – some had a 5 hr drive – wow! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Let’s roll out overdose prevention across ND. State to state sharing! Love it! Together “WE” save lives! Thank you!!! And thank you to everyone in the room for the good work you all do – I’m humbled by you all.”
The training was covered by local media. Our hope is that other organizations and communities in the area are inspired to learn more about opioid overdose, naloxone and the solutions.
