The Desert Sun:
Bill And Hillary Clinton Separately Push Drug Overdose Treatment
As Hillary Clinton campaigns for the presidency, the Clintons have worked to keep their political and philanthropic endeavors largely divided. But the work going on in the two Clinton worlds overlap, in mission, when it comes to addressing the nation's drug overdose crisis and making a lifesaving treatment more widely available. Naloxone can reverse an overdose from heroin or other opiates if administered promptly and correctly. An injectable version has been around since the 1970s, but in November the Food and Drug Administration approved the first naloxone nasal spray, under the brand name Narcan. (Newkirk, 1/29)
