On April 24 and 25 from 8 am to 5 pm, the MGH/MGPO Opioid Task Force will host Employee Medication Take Back Days. Staff are asked to bring unused or expired prescription medications – not limited to pain medications – for anonymous, safe disposal. Needles and syringes cannot be disposed of at this event.

An education table and medication bin will be set up by Coffee Central in the White corridor. There will be educational materials and giveaways available, including $5 gift cards to MGH eateries for the first 50 participants each day. Any employee who returns unused prescription medications can enter a drawing for an Apple Watch. Entrants will be given a numbered ticket at the table. The winning number will be announced via the MGH Broadcast email.

For more information, contact Jenna Berube at 617-724-9080.
