Narcan Training

Narcan Training


Did you know that Indianapolis had over 1500 opioid overdoses last year? That is how many times emergency services administered Narcan, the antidote to opioids. With the influx of synthetic fentanyl, communities around the Midwest are seeing cluster overdose events. As a downtown church with many outreach ministries, it behooves us to have trained Narcan administrators on hand. If you are interested in knowing more please come to the educational event on Wednesday April 18th from 5:30-6:30pm. This event is open to all. 

Please call Jennifer at the Marion County Public Health Dept. to register: 317-221-4618.

      On March 18 after worship in the Conference Room, Central member Caroline Fisher will offer the first in a series of four sessions on interpersonal violence including Bullying, Child and Elder Abuse, Rape, and Intimate Partner (Domestic) Violence.  These sessions will be spread out over the next few months.     Session 1 will take a look at violence in general, bullying and an overview of the forms of violence that will be discussed in subsequent sessions.  This will be looked at not only from how it impacts the victim/survivor, but also how it impacts the assailant and the community.  Future sessions will cover Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking, and Child and Elder Abuse.  Caroline Fisher, BSN, RN, SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) has been an Emergency Department Nurse for over 30 years and has coordinated the Center of Hope at St. Francis (Franciscan Alliance-Indianapolis) for over 20 years.  She provides forensic nursing care for all victims of violence.
