Dr. Michael McNeil, Chief of Administration for Columbia Health, included in Healthline article

Dr. Michael McNeil, Chief of Administration for Columbia Health and Professor of Sociomedical Sciences at the Mailman School of Public Health, was interviewed for a Healthline article about naloxone training during a pandemic, including how to find a training, and other ways to get involved.

The article, "Ever Considered Narcan Training? Now is the Time to Act" reads in part: “Members of the community hold membership in other spaces. The more people we train, the more naloxone there is, and people carry their kits with them as they move about spaces,” says Michael McNeil, the naloxone program administrator at Columbia Health.
