These trainings will be held at the University Memorial Center (UMC), room 404, at noon and 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19; Tuesday, Oct. 17; and Tuesday, Nov. 14. They are about 30 minutes long and open to students, faculty and staff.

At 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, Health Promotion, Counseling and Psychiatric Services, the CU Collegiate Recovery Center and the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program will come together to share stories of those who have experienced or been impacted by overdose, connect people to resources on campus and teach overdose prevention and response skills.
