The “Most Wonderful Time of the Year” is upon us and we love the numerous gatherings and parties the holidays bring! However, these celebrations also present the opportunity for guests to acquire medications that are not theirs, including prescription drugs from your home medicine cabinet. I encourage you to join the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Foundation (NABPF) and their AWARXE Consumer Protection Program, as well as Girls’ Lunch Out, for a Twitter Party, taking place on November 14th from 9PM-10PM ET.

Did you know that more than 50% of prescription drug abusers 12 and older obtained those prescription drugs from family and friends for free? The good news is kids who learn at home about the risks of drug abuse are up to 50% less likely to abuse drugs, proving the best way to keep your loved ones safe from prescription drug abuse is through education.

During this Twitter Party, there will be talk about the dangers an unmonitored medicine cabinet can pose, proper disposal of prescription medication, and tips for keeping your family safe during the holiday season. They will also provide tips for organizing your medications and the best way to travel with your prescriptions.

By participating in the party, everyone will also be entered into a drawing for the chance to win big! Lucky attendeed will win Holiday Survival Kits that include AmEx Gift Cards, Airline prescription/toiletry bags, Pill boxes, and AWARxE Flyers. Everyone can RSVP by visiting .
