You have a great opportunity to safely dispose of unused medication during the Community Medication Take Back event, hosted by WellStar Health System staff. It will be held 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 23, at Acworth Health Park, East Cobb Health Park and Cobb Senior Services. Do your part to prevent accidental poisoning, overdoses and improper use of medications by simply taking your medications to one of these three drop-off locations. Your efforts will ultimately save lives by removing expired and unused prescription medications from your medicine cabinet. No questions will be asked and no forms or ID required. Sharps, liquids and pills are accepted. Since these events started in 2015, a little more than two tons of medication has been collected. WellStar Clinical Partners will also offer flu shots at the Acworth and East Cobb Health Park locations (not available at the Cobb Senior Services location). Cobb County Police Department and Safe Kids Cobb County team up with WellStar to offer this event in our community. For more information these events, call 770-793-7373.
