Walmart has joined the Prescription Drug Safety Network, powered by education technology company EVERFI, to bring a powerful prevention education tool to teens in high schools across Arkansas, Colorado, Texas, Indiana, and Illinois. The interactive course, called Prescription Drug Safety, uses gamified technology to inform students on topics like safe use, storage, and disposal of medications, avoiding risks associated with prescription drug misuse and abuse, accessing help and treatment through community resources. Walmart is involving parents, state leaders, and educators in this important initiative through community engagement events across these states. The program is estimated to reach over 200 schools this academic year.
