The first MTSU Prescription Drug Take-Back Day was so successful that Campus Pharmacy, Public Safety and Health Promotion organizers immediately began planning for the second one.
Open to both the general public and campus community, it will take place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the Student Health, Wellness and Recreation Center on the east side of campus. The drop off will be at the drive-up location next to the Campus Pharmacy drive-thru.
WASHINGTON (AP/WMOT) — About 15 percent of the nation’s young people are neither in school nor working, and the problem is even worse in Tennessee.
The organization Opportunity Nation says about 6 million American youth are idle. The number of idle Tennesseans in the 16 to 24 age bracket stands at 17.5 percent, or nearly 3 percentage points higher than the national average.
Linda O’Neal is the Director of the Tennessee Commission on children and youth. She says missing out on formative experiences may come back to haunt the state’s young people later in life.
