Chemistry Students Volunteer at Drug Take-Back Event

On April 27, Belmont students Gerald Offei-Nkansah, Huner Aradini, Phillip Cook and Emily Locke and Chemistry Professor Kimberlee Daus participated in the Dickson County Drug Take-Back event. Taking place on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, the event was coordinated by Vanderbilt University and the Dickson Police Department. Working alongside faculty and students from Vanderbilt University and Lipscomb University, Belmont students and faculty cataloged and counted more than 50 pounds of medication. The National Drug Take-Back Day, set by the Drug Enforcement Agency, provides a service to community through safe and responsible disposal of unused medication. Additionally, these events help to educate the public about the potential of drug abuse associated with these medications.
