Safe Medication Use, Storage, and Disposal

Medications classAre you taking your medications safely?  Learn about safe use, safe storage, and safe disposal of medications through a free one-hour training hosted by Winfield Public Library on Wednesday, March 30 at 1:30 pm.  Originally developed by the American Association of Poison Control Centers for individuals 60 years of age and older, this presentation will be led by DCCCA in partnership with the Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services.

“It is important for everyone to know what questions to ask their physicians, know warning signs of a potential overdose, plus know what to do and who to call,” says Dena Kemp, who will facilitate the training.

The training will be offered as a hybrid event, giving community members the option to attend in-person at the WPL Community Room or via Zoom.  Participants should register through the events calendar at or by calling 620-221-4470.  A Zoom link will be sent by email the day of the event.
