APhA-ASP Generation Rx

Share This Page

The Generation Rx Initiative, developed by The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy and funded by the Cardinal Health Foundation, is an educational program that increases public awareness of prescription medication abuse and encourages health care providers, community leaders, parents, teens, and college students to actively work to prevent abuse. APhA-ASP is honored to partner with Cardinal Health on this educational program to expand the breadth and depth of this important initiative to the communities surrounding our nation’s schools and colleges of pharmacy.

We challenge every APhA-ASP Chapter to collaborate with pharmacists, educators, community outreach programs, and local organizations in your area to make a difference with Generation Rx.
