The mission of Generation Rx is to provide education on the risks associated with medication misuse to community members of all ages. Through this mission, Generation Rx strives to improve medication safety among our youth, teens, and all other members of our community. During the 2016-2017 school year, Generation Rx succeeded in hosting numerous events on both campuses totaling to over 100 hours of volunteer time and educating over 3,000 community members. Generation Rx volunteers hosted 17 presentation days educating students ranging from grades 6-12, attended 10 health fairs, presented at a Carleton County teacher workshop, met with the Baxter area Kiwanis club, and hosted a lunch lecture. Student pharmacists involved with Generation Rx have the opportunity to continue this legacy by contributing to the education of our community on safe medication practices. Student pharmacists on both the Duluth and Twin Cities campuses can sign up to attend lunch lectures and participate in health fairs and various presentations.
