In Pontiac, Illinois, a new approach to collecting unwanted medicines–developed by high school students–is up and running. The students used the IISG toolkit as they developed their program. IISG also helped pay for the billboard designed to raise awareness on this issue. Program specialists are also working closely with Paul Ritter and Eric Bohm, the teachers behind this project, to promote related curriculum. IISG continues to partner with P2D2 to educate the Great Lakes states and beyond on the proper disposal of unwanted medicines.
