Elite Physical Therapy participated in the National DEA Drug Take-Back Event on Saturday October 26, 2019 at our Spring Hill office. We partnered with the Spring Hill Police Department and Maury County Coalition to make the event an even bigger success than the event we hosted in April. As we reported in April, we collected nearly 59 pounds of expired and unwanted medications from the Spring Hill Community and although it rained throughout this weekends event, we were able to collect 83 pounds. It’s so wonderful to have the help from all of the volunteers who made this event possible and even more wonderful to have the interaction with the Spring Hill community to join us in our efforts. A big thank you to the Spring Hill Police Department, Maury County Coalition, all of the volunteers who came out to help and the community for the support and donations.
As a reminder, you do not have to wait for the next event in April to drop off your medications.
