There will be multiple places across the area to drop off unused or expired medication for proper disposal from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M.

The aim of the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is to get harmful substances out of the hands of children and adults that could abuse them, as well as keeping the drugs from potentially polluting the environment.

ULM will announce today an agreement between the University of Louisiana Monroe and a Shreveport company to license an olive oil-based nutraceutical developed by a professor in the School of Pharmacy. 
 
ULM has entered into an agreement with Segue Science Management as the result of research and development by Khalid El Sayed, Ph.D. of the School of Pharmacy.

 
Since 2009, El Sayed has worked to develop an olive oil-based food supplement to help prevent cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. His work is so promising that patents have already been filed.
