SafeRx Santa Cruz County and Community Prevention Partners (CPP) request that you please take this 2-3 minute survey about Medicine Storage and Disposal. In addition to other focus areas of SafeRx and CPP, this survey is designed to increase community attention to personal medication storage disposal.
In the 2016-2017 Seven Challenges Survey, 45% of Santa Cruz County youth reported getting prescription medicine not prescribed to them from friends, and 33% from home without parental knowledge.
To bring awareness to this issue, collect data, and to prevent youth and adult access to medicines not prescribed to them, SafeRx Santa Cruz County and CPP are conducting a three week long, county-wide survey. This survey invites parents, friends, and family members to learn more about safe medicine storage and disposal best practices, and reduce youth and adult access to medicines not prescribed to them.

Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to complete an individual survey. To help ensure a wide response in our community, please consider forwarding this message to any Santa Cruz County resident.
