BEMIDJI — Bemidji State University to host an opioid awareness and Narcan training event at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 3, at Hagg-Sauer Hall 150 on the BSU campus.

Andrea Herold, an educator from Rural AIDS Action Network and recovering opioid addict, will teach attendees how to recognize and respond to signs of an overdose, including administering naloxone, commonly known as Narcan, to reverse the reaction. The training is part of BSU’s National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week activities, a release said.

Narcan kits and training are available locally for free at Face It Together Bemidji thanks to a partnership between RAAN and the Minnesota Department of Human Services.

There is no cost to attend and the event is open to the public.
