Nebraska Drug Overdose Awareness Week

The Nebraska MEDS Coalition would like to thank Governor Ricketts for proclaiming August 27 - September 2, 2018, as Nebraska Drug Overdose Awareness Week. The Coalition continues to advocate for measures that can reduce the number of drug overdoses in Nebraska. Educating patients, family members, and the public about the seriousness of this issue is a priority, particularly with the Every Day is Take-Back Day in Nebraska drug disposal project, the Attorney General's Dose of Reality Campaign, and the great work of the Nebraska Regional Poison Center to name a few. This proclamation will help elevate the message and encourage active roles to raise awareness about drug overdoses in Nebraska.
