Career Shadowing-Free Clinic

James Banks

Today I had a job shadowing in the Free Clinic of Greater Cleveland. I learned about  the dangers shooting heroine and using dirty syringes which could lead to risks such as AIDS. We also learned about a drug called Naloxone that is used to help someone who has overdosed on drugs, such as heroine. It seemed weird to me that they also gave out clean syringes that could enable a drug addict, but if they overdose-someone could administer the drug and within 2-8 minutes, and they would be fine. If they’re giving them all the supplies to do drugs-wouldn’t it feed their addiction? Also (even though I won’t be having it any time soon), I learned about safe sex and using condoms. They can be used to prevent pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. A couple months ago, a group of kids from the Cleveland School of the Arts did a play telling us about not having sex until you’re ready, to do it safely when we do, and to always check for AIDS. This whole day brought back some memories.

Well, today we had a nice time at the Free Clinic. We took a tour of the clinic, and  they have a very nice clinic-but the clinic is basically like a  hospital. We help make their marketing products. We learned that they give free kits to drug users. They give you a clean needle if you give them a needle that you have used.

Today I went to the Free Clinic. They have been around since 1974 – 2014. They have free dental care.  They are the only place with free dental care in Cleveland Ohio. They said the south of Cleveland is the worst for Heroin users. They give away free clean nedails for used nedails. They have a medicine called Naloxe if you overdose on a drug. We made bags of condom for the hiv drive.This what I learned and did for the career shadowing.
