What Would You Do If Your Friend

Died of Opioid Toxicity or Poisoning?

Most of us would mourn — a bright young life ended too soon. But if you’re Jeff Hardy, the founder of evan Digital Health and Informatics, you would take action and find a way to prevent senseless opioid deaths and create a company to honour the name of the young man you knew who met this fate: Evan.

This is a Public Health Crisis:

2 Hours

Every two hours a Canadian loses their life to opioid related toxicity.

130 People

Every day 130 people die of opioid related toxicity in the United States.

94% Accidental
