Wellness Wednesdays: Medication Knowledge is Power

Wednesday, September 11, 2 – 3 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

Illinois Coalition on Substance Use and Aging (ICSUA) informs us about medications and prescriptions.

Many older adults take multiple medications on a regular basis. It is critically important to understand how to use these commonly prescribed medications safely in order to avoid unintentional misuse.

This workshop provides older adults, senior care workers, and adult children with aging parents with information to help identify signs of medication misuse, recognize how medications and alcohol interact, and gather tips for using prescribed medications safely and effectively.  Nina J. Henry, LCPC, CADC, Addiction Specialist at JCFS Chicago will present.  A licensed pharmacist, Tran H. Tran, PharmD, BCPS will be on hand to answer questions about your medicine and to provide Naloxone training.

Everyone is welcome, but registration is strongly recommended.
Phone the Readers Services desk at (847) 448-8620 or register online.
