ZTA Foundation helps award Generation Rx grants

This grant is offered through a partnership between the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation, Generation Rx, and the Higher Education Center for Alcohol and Drug Misuse Prevention and Recovery to support educational efforts on college campuses toward instilling safe medication practices among students that are members of fraternities and sororities. It supports the dissemination and use of “Generation Rx University” educational resources about general safe medication practices, as well as specific programming to prevent stimulant and opioid misuse. The program is administered through the Higher Education Center, which will also provide technical assistance relating to the use of these resources.

Five grants of $1,000 will be awarded. Click here to apply.
