March 1 – Kyle And Marissa

Today we are joined with leaders of the Orange County Needle Exchange (OCNEP). OCNEP began when a group of medical students realized that a needle exchange was needed in Santa Ana to stem the transmission of infectious diseases, especially amongst injection drug users. In the episode the founder, Kyle Barbour, explains the philosophy of harm reduction as a means of promoting public health. Marissa Lovio, a steering committee member, adds details about the process of becoming state certified and the inauguration of the exchange in February. Find out how you can get involved by contacting staff@ocnep.org or the website.
