Marshall University School of Pharmacy students participate in national drug diversion project
"As a school, we are bridging gaps between health care, law officers, and the public," she said. "If the public knows that drug take-back, drop-off locations are available, we as a community may be able to decrease the probability that prescription drugs end up in the wrong hands for illicit or unsafe use."
Saturday's event has multiple locations around the region. Marshall pharmacy students will be stationed at the following locations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.:
o Huntington Police Department, Douglass Center, 1448 10th Ave.
o Cabell County Sheriff's Department, CVS, 5179 U.S. 60 E.
o Milton Police, Milton Pre-K School, 1302 U.S. 60, Milton
o Kenova Police, Kenova Fire Department, 1600 Pine St., Kenova
o Wayne Police, Wayne Police Department, 10328 Rt. 152, Wayne
The national campaign aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. The U.S. Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Agency sponsor the event on the federal level. Locally, the Cabell County Substance Abuse Prevention Partnership and law enforcement agencies are leading the project.
