Generation Rx - Safe Medication Practices for Better Health

Via Zoom - no registration needed

Did you know that the misuse of prescription medications is one of our country’s most pressing public health problems, with adverse drug events being a significant issue for older adults? It’s true that prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm—especially when misused.

Ohio State Extension, Darke County is happy to bring Generation Rx to our community. Generation Rx, the nation-wide educational initiative to promote safe medication practices to prevent the misuse of prescription drugs workshop will be available online on September 2nd at 9:30 a.m.

This educational programming will address simple ways you can be an advocate to decrease the risk for adverse drug events, the safe storage and disposal of medications, as well as prescription drug misuse in our country. The educational program includes engaging activities that focus on teaching older adults’ safe medication practices. There will also be the opportunity for the audience to participate in a Q&A session. 

Generation Rx is offered through a partnership between the Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy and will be presented by Dr. Roseanne Scammahorn, Family and Consumer Sciences Educator for OSU Extension, Darke County.

If you are interested in participating in free workshop, please log into Zoom at on September 2nd.
