A report and delegations are coming before the Upper Grand District School Board on Tuesday evening, where trustees will vote to proceed with next steps towards putting naloxone in schools.
Naloxone is a live-saving emergency treatment used in nasal or injection forms to halt an overdose.
Delegates include Adrienne Crowder, chief of the Wellington Guelph Drug Strategy, medical assistant Hannah Derue and chief of emergency medicine at Guelph General Hospital Ian Digby.
Board meetings take place at the UGDSB building at 500 Victoria Rd. North and are open to the public. There is also a full slate of items on the agenda before the board breaks for the summer.
One woman spoke to The Post about her experience with naloxone, a situation during which she saved a man’s life outside the Sleeman Centre downtown Guelph.
