POUNDS OF UNUSED MEDICINE: About 185 pounds of expired and unused medication were collected during the Pitt Pharmacy Drug Take-Back Day on Sept. 11. About 100 members of the University community and public dropped off medications to Pitt Police and School of Pharmacy doctoral student volunteers in Nordenberg Hall. The expired and unused medications are vulnerable to misuse and theft and contribute to environmental contamination if disposed of improperly. The drugs were picked up and destroyed by the federal Drug Enforcement Administration. From left are 3rd-year School of Pharmacy student volunteers Alex Marshall and Karley Fazzone.
