Naloxone training at Iowa Capitol

Tiffany Carter of the Cedar Rapids-based Iowa Harm Reduction Coalition (center) conducts training at the Iowa Capitol on Monday for Iowa Agriculture Secretary Mike Naig (left) and State Auditor Rob Sand so they will be able to administer Naloxone — an FDA-approved drug that can be used to prevent or reverse an opioid overdose. Monday’s training session also was intended to bring awareness to the opioid epidemic in its most deadly time of year — the holiday season.
