Discuss Prescription Safety and Disposal at AtlantiCare Health Park on April 18

Apr 09, 2018

Properly taking prescribed medications and their safe disposal are a big deal nowadays, particularly with the ongoing rise in addiction to pain medicines and opiates. That’s why AtlantiCare’s Manahawkin Health Park has scheduled a “Know Your Medications, Know Your Pharmacist” event for Wednesday, April 18.

Throughout the day, visitors can meet with an AtlantiCare pharmacist to review medications and discuss medication safety, along with proper disposal of medications and overall health and wellness. In addition, the Stafford Township Police Department is expected to have its mobile prescription drug drop-off box on hand for the safe removal of unused or unwanted medications.

Admission is free, but registration is required – the deadline is Friday, April 13. The health park is located at 517 Route 72 West. For more information, call 888-569-1000. —D.B.
