SOMA Students Helping to Prevent Opioid Overdoses
The BCOM SOMA students with Athena Huckaby at a recent training event.

The BCOM Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA) has joined forces with Dona Ana County Overdose Prevention Educator Athena Huckaby to distribute Narcan nasal spray throughout the community. Narcan, the brand name for the medication naloxone, is the antidote for an opioid overdose. With the exception of the methadone clinic, Huckaby says the SOMA students have distributed more Narcan than any other group in the community.
