The LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth (LCAHY) and their youth coalition, Teens for Healthy Youth (THY), educated parents and caregivers about medicine safety and Rx Drop Box locations during the Town of Bluffton’s Safety Spooktacular Event. THY assisted LCAHY in distributing packets of information that included LCAHY informational brochure, LCAHY’s Rx Fact Card with year-round Rx drop off locations, and SAMSHA’s “Talk They Hear You” App. Teens for Healthy Youth also passed out Medicine Safety Tips to parents, candy to trick or treaters, face painted children, and gave them coloring sheets that said, “Say Boo to Drugs” and “Owl Never Do Drugs”. Overall, 155 informational materials were distributed during this event. Staffing informational tables at community events is an outreach activity in LCAHY’s 12-month Action plan. LCAHY and THY plan to participate yearly in the Town of Bluffton’s Safety Spooktacular Event.
