We hear a lot in the news about the opioid epidemic, but less about how we are going to stop this crisis. Santa Cruz County has been working in collaboration with doctors, pharmacists, and other community members on prevention. Prevention includes shifting prescribing practices, providing alternatives for long-term pain management, locking medications, and disposing of unused meds at drop offs sites around Santa Cruz County.
Please join us to celebrate these prevention efforts, learn more, and get involved.
We will have a short service starting at 11am and then get ready to learn about prevention and helping our community at the Safe Rx carnival at 12pm. There will be a bouncehouse, food trucks, music, and the Santa Cruz Warriors doing a 3-point shooting contest.
