The Medicine Hat Health Foundation wishes to show their support to the Medicine Hat Drug Coalition by lighting the teepee purple from Aug 25- Aug 31 for International Overdose day on August 31, 2022. The coalition’s goal is to raise more awareness of those lost to substance related deaths. 

On August 31st, from 5-8 p.m. in the library courtyard (414 First Street S.E.), the Drug Coalition will be hosting the 5th annual event, promoting reflection and remembrance. It will feature a BBQ, live music, Naloxone training, service provider resources, and several opportunities to honour our lost loved ones.

Please attend this event to demonstrate inclusion, compassion, and removal of stigma within our community.
