Narcan Vending Machine At California University

Santa Clara University (SCU) is installing a free on-campus vending machine that dispenses canisters of the FDA-approved Narcan, a life-saving medicine that can reverse an opioid overdose when administered quickly, reported The Mercury News.

According to Setareh Tehrani, who helped launch the project, Stanford University will soon follow suit and install a machine.

A student, Isabella Bunkers, said their goal is to "get naloxone out into the community because the more naloxone that people have in their hands, the more chances there are to save a life."

The latest push to address the opioid epidemic that continues to take its toll nationwide follows a recent push from Minnesota lawmakers to allow schools access to naloxone. Under the new proposal, each school must keep two doses of Narcan spray in stock.
