Students Host Prescription Drug Awareness Events

Senior health and exercise science students are hosting events Oct. 24-25 to raise awareness of prescription drug abuse and misuse.

Brenda Higgins of the Student Health Center will give a presentation on prescription drug abuse and misuse from 7-8 p.m. Oct. 24 in Violette Hall 1010.

From 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 25 on the Quad there will be a table set up where students, staff, faculty and community members can drop off their leftover prescription medications. The table will be supervised by a police officer, and all medications will be disposed of safely. It is requested that no illegal drugs be brought to the table.

Following the take back event, students enrolled in Health 270 will give presentations all over campus about the dangers of prescription drugs.
