Can you say that 3 times fast? We thought that would make you smile!
On a more serious note, U.S. Pain Foundation is collaborating with Pain Matters in supporting appropriate use, storage and disposal of prescription pain medications. That’s why we are counting on our passionate Pain Ambassadors, Advocates and Volunteers to spread the word about National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.
On October 22nd, we’re asking that you share as much information as you can on your Facebook and Twitter pages about appropriate storage, usage and disposal of prescription pain medications. Led by the Drug Enforcement Administration, National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day aims to provide people across the country a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposing prescription drugs.
In support of this effort, U.S. Pain Foundation is proudly supporting the initiative by providing awareness tools through Pain Matters that notes the importance of ensuring pain medications stay in the hands of those who need them.
U.S. Pain Foundation has scheduled Facebook and Twitter Posts surrounding this cause and ways others can learn more about safe use of prescription medications as well as disposal. We’re asking that you LIKE, SHARE and RETWEET anything that pertains to National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from the organization.
In addition, we’d love for our Pain Ambassadors, Advocates and Volunteers to share the patient voice on social media to further promote patient safety. See the below sample posts for you to easily copy and paste into your own accounts!
