Orange Magazine: Texas Public Health discusses opioid prevention and response training

Students at the University of Texas at Austin promoted National Public Health Week by informing others about opioids and what to do in cases of overdose. Check it out here!

"JP Sanchez, president of UT Student Chapter of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy, continued the rest of the training. He touched on the possible symptoms of an overdose.  “If breathing looks slow, lips or nails are blue. They’re going to feel cold,” Sanchez said. Other symptoms include no movement, little reaction and choking.

Sanchez clarified that Texas does not have medical amnesty, meaning that if there are drugs around when someone dials 911, they could be charged for drug possession or use."
