BMC ED Cited as Leader in Narcan Kit Distribution

Dr. Edward Bernstein, Professor of Emergency Medicine, and Dr. Kristin Dwyer, graduate of the BMC Emergency Medicine Residency Program, were featured in a recent article in the Boston Herald on efforts to treat patients suffering from opioid addiction.

Boston Medical Center’s Department of Emergency Medicine is a national leader in substance abuse research, intervention, and treatment. Our innovative Project ASSERT program and nasal naloxone kit distribution efforts were cited by the article as potential models for other emergency departments trying to combat the region’s opioid epidemic.
