GenerationRx youth toolkit addresses Rx abuse among teens
DUBLIN, Ohio — The Cardinal Health Foundation has strengthened its alliance with the Ohio State University College of Pharmacy to address prescription drug abuse among teens.
The Cardinal Health Foundation and the college's GenerationRx youth toolkit provides healthcare providers, pharmacists, parents, teachers, youth group leaders and other concerned citizens with unique, interactive resources to educate teens about the realities and dangers of prescription drug abuse, the Cardinal Health Foundation said.
The toolkit — which is available for download at CardinalHealth.com/GenerationRx — complements the Generation Rx toolkit the two organizations developed for adults.
“Cardinal Health customers and employees are passionate about educating the public about the dangers of prescription drug abuse and misuse, and our new youth toolkit was created in direct response to their interest in speaking directly to teens about this growing public health issue,” said Jessica Lineberger, community relations manager for Cardinal Health.
