OSU Extension Office to host Drug Abuse Prevention Training

On Tuesday, March 20th from 6-7:30 p.m. the OSU Extension Office of Pickaway County will be hosting a Drug Abuse Prevention Training in collaboration with "Generation Rx: Safe Medication Practices for Life" at Circleville High School.

The mission of Generation Rx is to educate people of all ages about the potential dangers of misusing prescription medications. In doing so, we strive to enhance medication safety among our youth, college students, other adults in our communities, and seniors. Prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm – especially when misused. During this training you will learn how to utilize the FREE educational tools on the Generation RX website to help you teach about safe medication practices.

The tool kit offers materials for children, teens, college students, adults, seniors, patients, and the workplace. This program is funded through a mini-grant provided by Ohio State University College of Pharmacy and Cardinal Health.
