Newsmakers

This week on Newsmakers, Dan Cummings talks with Kevin Donovan, Overdose Prevention Coordinator for ACR Health in Syracuse.   

The agency this week announced new rules for the distribution of Narcan, the opioid overdose rescue drug. 

Narcan is now available without prescription for at-risk individuals in more than 2,000 pharmacies statewide. 

ACR Health has trained thousands of people how to administer the drug and will continue to do so.
