Last month, Kaiser Health News reporter Heidi DeMarco visited our FACES program in Sacramento, CA, to observe the Public Health Youth Corps students in action! With youth opioid overdose deaths on the rise, Heidi wanted to learn more about how PHYC students are trained to use Narcan and become advocates for overdose prevention in their communities. She observed a workshop, interviewed students, and saw them in action conducting lunchtime outreach with their peers at Hiram Johnson High School. Thank you to Heidi and Kaiser Health News for highlighting the amazing work of our FACES Sacramento students!
Listen to the resulting Spanish radio segment on Radio Billingue, which featured an interview with our Founding Director, Dr. Tomas Magana, HERE (11/18, starting at 9:19).
