Prescription medication overdosages, about 60% of them unintentional, take the lives of hundreds of Virginians of all ages every year. And the numbers are growing at an astounding rate. Intiatives to successfully address this problem must include partners from a variety of interest areas: families, law enforcement, mental health, pediatric health, substance abuse, poison control, injury prevention and many others. Here is an event that will provide some initial information on the problem, and an opportunity for concerned individuals to find out about prevention initiatives. Please share the attached info with others who may be interested.
