Abstract

Nursing students from CNPD, in conjunction with the UND Police Department, are hosting a Medication Take Back Event on Thursday October 27 from 11am to 3pm at Memorial Union (in front of Marketplace).

Unused and/or expired medications in your home or dorm have the potential to lead to accidental poisonings or overdose and can become possible targets for break-ins and thievery. It is important to take medications as prescribed, and to dispose of them correctly when they are no longer needed. Dropping them off at this event provides a safe and responsible way to get rid of unused medications.

Medications can be dropped off anonymously. For more information, contact Cameron Cuthbert at cameron.cuthbert@und.edu.
