Great Lakes Pharmaceutical Stewardship Summit to be held in Chicago, June 7 & 8th

As part of the Great Lakes Pharmaceutical Initiative, the Product Stewardship Institute will be hosting a summit with the University of Wisconsin-Extension and the Midwest Product Stewardship Council to build a strategy for expanding pharmaceutical collection in the Great Lakes region to reduce pharmaceutical pollution and prescription drug abuse.

The Great Lakes Pharmaceutical Stewardship Summit will be held next week in Chicago on June 7th and 8th. Additional logistical information, the draft agenda and registration can be found here. The cost of registration is $30 and space is still available for those interested in participating.

The meeting will provide opportunities for discussion among a diverse group of experts and policymakers from around the region about potential models for creating a regional pharmaceutical collection program. The Summit will be focused on a high-level discussion of policies and practices being tested or developed to address the public health and environmental impacts of the disposal of unused and expired medications.
