Partnership Aims to Prevent Students from Misusing Prescription Drugs
Date:6/28/2012

WASHINGTON and STAMFORD, Conn., June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Education Association Health Information Network (NEA HIN), in partnership with Purdue Pharma L. P., today announced the release of newly developed educational resources on prescription drug abuse and misuse.

The resources, called Rx for Understanding, include 10 cross-curricular lessons for middle school students.  Aligned with the National Health Education Standards and Common Core State Standards, the lessons aim to equip students with the understanding and decision-making skills they need to recognize and avoid the dangers of misusing and abusing prescription drugs.

"We know that 20 percent of high school students have reported that they have taken a prescription drug without a doctor's prescription," said Jerry Newberry, NEA HIN Executive Director.  "This behavior endangers student health and can interfere with academic success.  NEA HIN welcomes our partnership with Purdue Pharma to help teachers inform students about the risks in misusing prescription medication."

Resources will be available free of charge, in print and online, to educators upon its launch on June 30  during the NEA Annual Meeting and Representative Assembly in Washington, D.C.
