Hello Everyone,

 Do you have an interest in the Fentanyl Crisis? If so, SOSMA is seeking a coordinator of this project to work with the Regional Naloxone Coordinator Shaughn Davoren to assist in this training camp. Please email me ASAP and I will put you in touch with Shaughn. The money for this training camp is a result of funding that MNBC has been able to secure.

Good walking boots (maybe still snow boots, or rubber boots to splash in the puddles!).
