ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Students and faculty from the St. Louis College of Pharmacy will be visiting seven senior living communities in the St. Louis area to collect unused and expired medications.

The DEA St. Louis Division will be assisting the students and faculty at the events. They will go door-to-door helping residents clear out their medicine cabinets.

The medication take-backs come during the week of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on April 28.

The goal of the take-backs is to give seniors the opportunity to dispose of unneeded medications and to teach the community about proper medication disposal to prevent medication misuse and abuse.
