Our region's largest group of orthopaedic specialists has taken the initiative to address the prescription drug abuse crisis by contributing to the mission of Not One More Alabama (NOMA) as one of its sponsors, and launching a campaign to educate patients about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.
The Orthopaedic Center (TOC) recently set in motion the "Mind Your Meds" campaign by printing posters for waiting areas in its two Huntsville locations and other locations in Madison, Guntersville, Athens, Scottsboro and Fayetteville, TN plus its therapy clinics in surrounding communities. Posters like the one shown below have been printed by Colonial Printing in Huntsville (a contribution of another sponsor of NOMA) and will be posted at each TOC location. Each poster lists the closest "drop off site" for that particular location.
This is the first of several campaigns that TOC has planned to address the opioid crisis. The first campaign coincidentally preempted today's announcement by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Think of what we can do with coordinated campaigns among federal, state and local agencies! If you would like a poster for your business or school, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
