National Health Center Week, Aug. 11-17, 2013, proved to be an uplifting and meaningful week of activities that provided hundreds of patients, supporters, and guests a chance to get to know Manet Community Health Center and access important health and wellness information.
The week is an annual celebration which highlights the work of health centers in the more than 7,000 communities they serve nationwide. Across Massachusetts, health centers provide care to some 820,000 residents.
Manet held five open houses M-F at North Quincy, Hough’s Neck, Quincy Medical Center, Snug Harbor/Germantown, and Hull.
Manet Community Health Center is addressing the growing problem of opioid overdoses in South Shore communities with a free program to distribute a drug that has the potential to reverse overdoses and save lives. Manet’s effort is part of a pilot initiative by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Opioid Prevention and Reversal Project.
Presently, Manet has the largest team from Quincy to Brockton that distributes nasal naloxone (Narcan)—known as the anti-overdose drug—and trains area residents in its use on a daily basis by walk-in or appointment (call 857-939-4108). Anyone can receive the free training, whether or not they are a Manet patient. Evening hours are available.
