Parkinson’s Disease 101
Tuesday, April 13 – 1:30 PM
In-House and Virtual
Friday, April 23, 8 AM-10 AM
Join the Verona area TRIAD for our spring Drug Take-Back.
The Take-Back aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the public about the potential for abuse of medications.
Unused medications in homes create a public health and safety concern, because they are highly susceptible to accidental ingestion, diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high. More Americans currently abuse prescription drugs than the number of those using cocaine, hallucinogens, and heroin combined, according to the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.
What to Know
Verona Police Department will accept unused, unwanted, and/or expired prescription drug medication. Please empty all pills into a clear plastic baggie, prior to the event, to assist with the ease of disposal. Prescription liquids and creams must be in their original packaging material.
For safety reasons, we will not accept sharps, inhalers, or anything under pressure. Non-prescription, personal hygiene products cannot be accepted.
If you have any questions please, contact the Verona Police Department at (608) 845-7623.
Everyone loves a good story. And everyone has some type of story to tell. Some are funny while others give advice through actual experience. We want to hear your stories!
Jim Zelem, Board member, is gathering stories in hopes to publish a book. If you have a story to share, send it to Senior Center to the attention of Jim Zelem. Put on your thinking cap, grab a pen and paper and get started!
Armed with decades of experiences, you can leave a legacy that will last for generations. Many have successfully managed mental and emotional well-being, rediscovered or found purpose in their lives, and connected with others from the wisdom and experience of the storytelling.
Only you can bring your unique perspective and experience to this world, so share your story today!
Jim is also looking for ideas for a title for the book, so start brainstorming!
