Syringe Exchange Outreach Worker Paij Nakamura was on a Hawaii News Now feature story on October 5 underscoring the importance of carrying naloxone to prevent overdose:


“Anybody who is taking an opioid medication for any reason is at risk for overdose, especially the medically frail or elderly,” she said.




 

Dr. Christina Wang was featured on a KITV news story on October 13 about ongoing efforts to relocate persons experiencing homelessness from the Chinatown area. Wang noted how it has frustrated efforts to provide needed wound care:


“We've lost contact with most of the folks [normally] there. If we don't see them for a couple of weeks that might really set us back where they might land in the emergency room or the hospital again with a more serious infection.”
