Roseman University Hosts National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day Events

Roseman University participated in this year’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Each year the DEA supports national efforts to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means for the public to dispose of prescription drugs, while also providing education about the potential for abuse of medications. Both campuses had successful events, and wanted to share a few pictures!

Henderson Campus

“On Saturday, April 24, the Drug Abuse Awareness Team and students from the Henderson campus participated in our second DEA National Drug Take-Back Day of the year and our amazing volunteers helped to collect over 740 lbs of expired and unused medications for safe disposal. We partnered with the DEA, Las Vegas Police Departments, PACT Coalition, and CARE Coalition at multiple locations in our community.” — Christine Taing

South Jordan Campus

“On Saturday, April 24, APhA-ASP members from the South Jordan, Utah campus were able to participate in National Drug Take-Back Day. With the amazing help of our student volunteers, the South Jordan Police Department reported that we were able to collect the largest amount of expired and unused medications for safe disposal that has ever been collected in one day by their department. We would like to give a big thanks to Officer Koy and Jodi, who were so kind and helpful in making this event happen and to one of our own, Dr. Lawrence, who helped in facilitating this event and taking the time out of his Saturday to help his community!”  — Emily Christiansen
