Major Coalition Milestones
Carbon County worked with Monroe and Pike Counties to develop a Stigma Simulation. (However, plans to deliver the simulation were put on hold due to social distancing requirements. This coalition has been on hold since March 2020, while members focus on keeping services operating.)
Carbon County is actively planning events for the autumn.
Naloxone Distribution Day
Carbon County organized a drive-through Naloxone distribution event to provide much needed overdose reversal medication.
