OFTC Pharmacy Tech Students Volunteer at Drug Take Back Event in Dublin 

Dublin, GA., (OFTC) –Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) Pharmacy Technology students recently volunteered during a Drug Take Back Event held at the Kroger Pharmacy in Dublin, Saturday, April 27. 

Dublin’s Kroger Pharmacy partnered with the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office to take back unused and expired medications on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, an event aimed to provide safe and convenient means to dispose of prescription and over-the-counter medications. 

“By participating in this event, OFTC’s pharmacy technology students played a role in educating the community of the importance of safe medication disposal and local locations where medications can be dropped off year-round,” shared Amanda Drew, Director of OFTC’s Pharmacy Technology Program. 

“Ensuring that medications are not flushed into the water system prevents pollution and protects our aquatic wildlife and drinking water,” Drew added.
