Suman Sahani and Kelsey Spangle from DOH-Duval’s OD2A Program
On August 19, DOH-Duval’s Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) program participated in the unveiling of Hearts for Mind’s latest Murals with Meaning project. The mural aims to spread awareness about substance misuse and mental health and includes a QR code linking individuals to community resources. At the event, DOH-Duval’s OD2A program distributed 2,500 fentanyl test strips, 25 Naloxone kits, and provided educational resources to the local community. The new fentanyl test strips provide important information about the presence of fentanyl in drugs and can help save lives.
Batman, Darth Vader and a Cute Teddy Bear made an appearance
