Tapestry Health of Northampton is sponsoring two free community forums to educate the public about the opioid crisis. The first session is at 6 p.m. Thursday, November 19th at Grace Episcopal Church, 14 Boltwood Ave. in Amherst. The second will be held early next week in Springfield at a location and time to be announced.
The forums will focus on how the opioid epidemic is impacting the region, how to prevent and respond to an overdose and how to access and administer Narcan, the nasal spray that can reverse an opioid overdose.
