National workshop on pharmaceuticals and proper disposal scheduled for Feb. 6-7

Mark your calendars for February 6-7, 2013, as Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant invites educators, community members, environmental professionals and others to a national workshop on pharmaceuticals, personal care products, their dangers, and their proper disposal. 

From our Unwanted Meds site
"Sea Grant is well positioned to help communities reduce the amount of PPCPs making their way to local water bodies. IISG invites all Sea Grant specialists, educators or communicators who have strong interest in this issue to attend the Keeping Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCPs) out of the Environment workshop to be held in Florida in February 2013.

The workshop will include information on:

 - Current research on PPCPs
 - Pathways to the environment
 - Risks to people, pets and wildlife
 - Waste minimization efforts"
And additional items. Visit the link above for complete information, including the link to register for the workshop online.
