Yellow Jugs Old Drugs Program
The Purdue College of Pharmacy hosted an event on September 10, 2015, where unwanted medications could be safely disposed of in a licensed facility--the Purdue Retail Pharmacy. Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller spoke at the event. The Purdue Retail Pharmacy is now able to accept all medications during normal operation, not just during a collection event. Dr. Patricia Darbishire, Clinical Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice, led the collection project, along with the help of the Purdue Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA).
