Naloxone in Public Housing: Success in St. Louis

April 4, 11:00 a.m.


In 2022, over a 36-hour period, St. Louis experienced the deadliest mass drug overdose event in the city’s history, leading to 11 overdoses and 7 deaths. These overdoses occurred at Parkview Apartments, public housing run by the St. Louis Public Housing Authority. They were the result of accidental fentanyl consumption.


This webinar will discuss the responsive cross-sector partnership that arose from this tragic event, which is focused on increasing outreach efforts to public housing facilities in St. Louis and lowering barriers for people to access life-saving naloxone and other health resources. The webinar will feature community health workers’ and residents’ perspectives on the program’s benefits. There will be time for Q&A after the panel presentation. See more details at the link.
