NABP Purchases AWARxE Consumer Protection Program
Date:9/29/2010

MOUNT PROSPECT, Ill., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Earlier this year, the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP®) was introduced to the AWARxE campaign, which was created and implemented by the Minnesota Pharmacists Foundation in 2007. Moved by the power of the campaign, NABP obtained the AWARxE program so that its message could be shared on a national level.

The Foundation was inspired to create the AWARxE campaign after hearing of the tragic death of 24-year-old Justin Pearson from an accidental mixed drug overdose. Pearson, who was a resident of St Cloud, MN, ordered the prescription drugs that lead to his death from an illicit online pharmacy that did not require a valid prescription. The drugs were dispensed from pharmacies around the country, including at least one in Minnesota.

"NABP has heard too many stories like Justin's," said William T. Winsley, MS, RPh, NABP president, "and when the Foundation approached us about taking the AWARxE campaign national we knew we had been presented with an excellent opportunity to help save others from having a similar story. Using the AWARxE consumer protection program as a vehicle, NABP aims to educate and raise public awareness about rogue Internet drug outlets, counterfeit medications, and prescription drug abuse, among other serious issues."

Since the program was launched by the Foundation, AWARxE has brought information about illegal drug sites and counterfeit medicines to the public through a dynamic Web site, YouTube videos, and media outreach. AWARxE information is targeted to teens as well as adults. In addition to raising awareness about the dangers of abusing medications, AWARxE provides medication safety information and encourages the public to rely on pharmacists for information on Internet pharmacies and counterfeit medications. The program has also partnered with D.A.R.E. to create training materials and public workshops.
