Adventist Health calls for ‘community solutions’ to stem drug overdose epidemic | News


A new symbol of everlasting life will take root in Adventist Health Bakersfield to remember lives lost to a drug overdose in commemoration of National Overdose Day on Wednesday.

An evergreen tree will be planted next to the hospital’s emergency room to symbolize “the presence … the footprints that people leave behind when they leave this world,” said Kiyoshi Tomono, community partnership executive for Adventist Health Bakersfield.
