Do you have expired or unused medications that you’d like to dispose of safely?

As part of Pharmacist Awareness Month, Memorial University pharmacy students and the School of Pharmacy’s Medical Therapy Services Clinic are hosting a public pill drop on Saturday, March 14, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Pharmacists from the school will also be on hand if you have questions about your medications.

You can drop off your prescription or over-the-counter medications at the clinic at 75 Tiffany Court, off Tiffany Lane in St. John’s. Be sure to keep the labels on, as it helps identify the medications.
