Dr. Ruchi Fitzgerald (right) of Hinsdale is pleased that Penny Johnson and Grant Glowiak (not pictured) of Union Church of Hinsdale have been trained to administer naloxone, also known as Narcan, to people experiencing an overdose. She would like all residents to keep Narcan in their home be trained in its use in the event of an emergency. "I always have Narcan kits that I can get and hand out and train people on," she said. "We can do it on my front lawn." People can call the Illinois Helpline for Opioids and Other Substances at (833) 234-6343 or email her at [email protected] (Jim Slonoff photo)
