OPIRG Brock Harm Reduction placement program with HLSC 4P40 in the focus on Public Health, and in partnership with Positive Living Niagara.
Since 2018, OPIRG Brock has had the great privilege of working with faculty and students in the Public Health 4P40 course. Within this program, placement students have the opportunity to gain education in harm reduction, Naloxone/ narcan, and addiction services, as well as working on event & campaign planning, web & graphic design, policy development, campus advocacy, and parnership development.
Through this program we have seen amazing expansion of harm reduction options at Brock, and are continually working to expand this work in the semesters ahead!
You can get Naloxone (Narcan) kits at no cost at the following locations. Some places may require identification.
