Host a Medication Take Back Event

Michigan OPEN is looking for sites interested in partnering with us to host an opioid and medication take-back event in their community on Saturday, September 30 from 10am-2pm! Michigan OPEN’s most recent event in May was held in six different communities and resulted in 552 families safely removing a total of 422 pounds of medication, including approximately 15,000 opioids, from their homes.

Take-back events are a great opportunity to serve our patients and our communities. Please consider joining us in this community service effort. Michigan OPEN will provide guidance and direction; we provide sites with a take-back management guide, a budget template and marketing/advertising templates to make your event a success! Please check out the attached document for more details.

Interested? Have questions? Join us on an upcoming conference call! Email MichiganOPEN@umich.edu to RSVP and receive details on the conference line.

Conference call dates and times are:

Tuesday, August 8 from 3:30-4:30pm

Thursday, August 17 from 9-10am
