A Harm Reduction Solution in Barker Park

Historian of science, technology, and medicine, Dr. Nancy Campbell, talks to HMM correspondent Corinne Carey about the controversy over the removal of park benches in downtown Troy’s Barker Park in response to open air drug use and overdoses in the park. Campbell, whose most recent book published by MIT Press in 2020 is OD: Naloxone and the Politics of Overdose, offers a set of alternative responses that the city could turn to that would enhance public safety. In this extended version of an interview that aired on the Hudson Mohawk Magazine on WOOC 105.3 FM in the capital region, Dr. Campbell offers concrete suggestions for steps that the City of Troy could take.
