Registered 501(c)(3) organizations in the following locations are invited to apply for grants ranging from $5,000 - $15,000:

Applicants are strongly encouraged to incorporate into their proposals the use of the comprehensive suite of GenerationRx prescription drug abuse awareness materials, developed by the Cardinal Health Foundation and The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, which are available at www.cardinalhealth.com/generationrx. These materials provide health care providers, pharmacists, parents, teachers, youth group leaders and other concerned citizens unique, interactive resources to educate teens, college students, adults and the elderly about the realities and dangers of misusing and abusing prescription drugs.  

"This grant funding will empower grassroots initiatives to raise awareness of the dangers of prescription drug misuse and abuse, so we can help put an end to this deadly epidemic," said Betsy Walker , community relations manager for Cardinal Health.
