What's in your medicine cabinet?


Topic 8:

Tuesday, May 19, 6:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

Here are some questions to get you thinking about the topic: Are over-the-counter medications helpful, or all hype? Are "natural" products better and safer for us? When can pills/medications be the best thing? Psychotropic meds - what should an adult know? Do you think it is good or bad that drugs are advertised on TV? How should you get rid of unused meds? Flush them down the toiler?

The cash bar opens at 6:30 p.m. with Very Berry Punch as the themed drink of the evening. Grab a drink and find a table, or mingle for a while, munching on free hor d'oeuvres.
