Dr. Bob Goldstein, MD and UVA Health Hosted a Prescription Drug Take-Back Event

May 6, 2024 by

Congratulations to Dr. Bob Goldstein, MD and the UVA Health Team that hosted a free drive-through Prescription Drug Take-Back Event on Saturday, April 27th, 2024 at a drop-off lane outside the UVA Health Education Resource Center.  The successful event gave a safe way to dispose of unused or old prescription drugs that often sit around at home. According to Dr. Goldstein, these drugs can cause harm through misuse or being consumed by accident. Or if they are flushed down toilets, or leak into landfills, they cause environmental harm and contaminate the water supply.

Dr. Goldstein was interviewed by WVIR and NBC 29 News Reporter Bria Stith with video coverage here: UVA hosting free prescription drug take-back event this weekend
