To help combat the opioid crisis and provide safe disposal of leftover prescription medications, the University of Virginia is hosting a free prescription drug take-back event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 24.

The prescription drug take-back event is sponsored by the UVA Pharmacy, UVA Pain Management Center and the UVA Police Department.
