The Northern Michigan Opioid Response Consortium (NMORC) is comprised of 32 member organizations over 18 rural Northern Michigan Counties. One of our goals under preventing deaths from opioid overdoses is related to providing Naloxboxes to community organizations, with the purpose of having naloxone available in areas where overdoses may occur, and public libraries are a priority for this placement. NMORC will discuss reasons for having Naloxboxes and a draft policy for implementing them in your libraries.

Note From Scott

August 24, 2023

Scott DuimstraI’ve been a member of the Michigan Library Association since 2005 and have given back to the organization through volunteering, serving on the Board and now as President. For what I’ve given to MLA, it has given me back so much more. I’ve made connections with MLA staff and members that have allowed me to grow as a professional. That is why it’s difficult for me to say goodbye.
