BOOTH FOR A CAUSE - Saturday Market

Updated: Apr 23, 2021

August 2018

The GCMSA manned a booth at the Greenville Saturday Market to teach the community the importance of properly disposing of their unused medicine in a safe way, keeping it out of the water system and out of unwanted hands. Several Alliance members handed out over 200 medication disposal pouches. They also spread awareness of the opioid epidemic in our community and handed out bookmarks listing the name of common opioids and locations of dropboxes to dispose of them properly in the Upstate.

GCMSA was honored to receive the 2019 South Carolina Medical Association Alliance Health Awareness Promotion (HAP) Award for Health Education and Community Service for this project.
