The Lake Country Health Planning Society will postpone their Naloxone training and information session that was originally scheduled for Friday, June 10 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Beasley Community Centre.
LCHPS is currently undergoing internal staffing changes according to executive director Corinne Remple. She said planning the event will resume later this week.
This event will be held just over a month after LCHPS subsidiary program Community Overdose Response and Education (CORE) held their inaugural event in Lake Country on opioid awareness.
