Vanderbilt’s Team Hope, an interdisciplinary team that seeks to provide evidenced-based care for opioid-exposed infants, will host a Drug Take Back Day, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Take Back day event will be held at the Vanderbilt Center for Student Well-being lawn at 1211 Stevenson Center Lane, across from the Student Health Center.

Medications accepted include any expired or unused over-the-counter and prescription medications, which will be accepted at no cost with no questions asked.

The take back event/initiative provides a safe, convenient and responsible way of disposing of prescriptions, educates the public about medication abuse and raises awareness about permanent collection boxes around campus. For more information, visit bit.ly/VanderbiltTeamHope.
