Proove Biosciences Announces Sponsorship of National Drug Take Back Day and HC DrugFree
Date:10/24/2013

IRVINE, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

Proove Biosciences, the leader in personalized pain medication innovation, is proud to be a Silver Sponsor partner of HC DrugFree and participant in National Drug Take Back Day this Saturday, October 26, 2013. HC DrugFree will be hosting the event at multiple locations throughout Howard County, Maryland in order to make it more convenient for all residents to participate.

This week’s National Drug Take Back Day coincides with the Medicine Abuse Project’s Mind Your Meds week - a week-long effort asking the public to show support for ending teen medicine abuse by safeguarding and disposing of prescription medicines at home. These events play a small role in the larger initiative of Medicine Abuse Awareness month, which takes place during the entire month of October.

Proove Biosciences will be providing “Mind Your Meds” T-shirts to the HC DrugFree’s Teen Advisory Council, which provides the youth perspective to staff and Board members of HC DrugFree. The Teen Advisory Council is composed of Howard County high school students who meet monthly to discuss teen drug and alcohol use, and develop educational messages that promote HC DrugFree’s vision.

HC DrugFree is a non-profit based out of Howard County, Maryland established to respond to the alarming number of teens using illegal substances in the community. Over the years, HC DrugFree has expanded as more high schools around the county became involved in providing substance abuse education. Joan Webb Scornaienchi serves as HC DrugFree’s executive director, and has over 20 years of experience in higher education.

“As a business, Proove Biosciences is active member of the Howard County Community and a socially-responsible enterprise. We are proud to sponsor and support Joan and the entire HC DrugFree team,” states Brian Meshkin, President and Founder of Proove Biosciences. “We sponsored last year’s record-collecting events in Howard County through HC DrugFree. Proove is happy to support and help strengthen this initiative. Ensuring prescription medications are responsibly disposed of is key to reducing the risk of teen abuse. Spreading the awareness of this issue and protecting children is foundational to Proove’s mission of reducing narcotic dependence risk and increasing safety through genetic testing and risk assessment.” Brian Meshkin also serves as the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Education in Howard County, Maryland.
