Health services, police department host prescription drug take back event

Student Health Services (SHS) is co-sponsoring Prescription Drug Take Back Day with the University Police Department (UPD).

The campus community can drop off any unused or expired medications throughout the month of April at SHS in the Student Wellness Center. Its regular office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

This national service is part of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s program to help prevent drug misuse or abuse of prescription and over-the-counter medications.

Before bringing an item, remember to bring the unused or expired medications in prescription bottles or a clear, sealed bag. Also, remove labels from the bottles or cover up personal health information, such as name, address and health insurance information.

For questions, contact SHS at 316-978-4792 or UPD at 316-978-3450.
