Prescription Drug Abuse in Action
Date / Time
April 22, 2015
More than 15 million people in the United States abuse prescription drugs, causing the largest percentage of deaths from drug overdosing. The student leadership in the College of Pharmacy, in conjunction with the UIC Wellness Center, will conduct a “Prescription drug abuse in action” program. The program will promote interprofessional dialogue among health care students, and those attending will participate in a group discussion focusing upon two simulated patient cases. In addition, a recovering addict will share his journey through – and his return from – prescription drug abuse. For more information, call the Wellness Center at 312-413-2120.
