Overdose Awareness Day

With a goal of raising awareness, supporting communities in the fight against drug addiction, and remembering loved ones lost to the epidemic, the state will observe its second “Ohio Overdose Awareness Day” on Wednesday, Aug. 31. Ohio State and the Office of Student Life are proud to join our fellow Ohioans and those across the country in remembering and honoring the lives lost to the opioid epidemic in our country.

We are also excited to partner with the Omega Gamma fraternity to provide a naloxone training to students in the Ohio Union. At the end of the training, students will receive a naloxone kit at no cost.
