Mobile Syringe Service Drives Harm Reduction Effort
Every Friday afternoon, two medical students at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine set off from campus to pick up the well-stocked mobile outreach van owned by a local nonprofit. Together, they drive north to rural communities and deliver free packs of sterile hypodermic syringes, fentanyl testing strips and Narcan to people who inject drugs.
