DRUG TAKE BACK DAY SET FOR APRIL 26

The Pawhuska Indian Health Clinic, the Northeast Oklahoma Chapter of the Commissioned Officer Association and the Osage Nation is sponsoring the third annual event for the National DEA Drug Take Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26 at the Osage Nation Police Department (Round-Building) in Pawhuska.

Hot dogs and beverages will be given away to participants and their families who bring unused or expired medications. The event gives the public a chance to properly dispose of their unused medications, preventing them from being thrown in the trash, flushed, or falling into children’s hands — all of which can have a negative impact.

The event is open to the public and everyone is encouraged to participate.
