APhA-ASP Generation Rx

Share This Page


Generation Rx is brought to APhA-ASP through a collaboration with the Cardinal Health Foundation, The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy and the APhA Foundation. It 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 the Cardinal Health Foundation, The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy and the APhA Foundation 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. Visit the new Generation Rx Website at GenerationRx.org to explore new resources, videos, and information related to safe medication practices.
