First Drug Take-Back Day a Huge Success

Co-sponsored by B-CORE, the BWH Pharmacy and Partners Employee Assistance Program, our first Drug Take-Back Day was held in January, 2018. Several employees emptied out their medicine cabinets, getting rid of expired and potentially dangerous medications. We collected one and a half huge boxes of medications! Everyone who dispensed of their medicines received a $5 cafeteria gift card, courtesy of B-CORE.

Remember: there is always a bin at the BWH Outpatient Pharmacy where you can dispense of your unused medications at any time.
