Dear Jerry:

I wonder if you would be willing to complete the Kansas Adolescent Health Community Input Survey, and then share it with others?
Specifically. . . 

Kansas State University has funding from KDHE Bureau of Family Health to conduct a Kansas Adolescent Health Needs Assessment community-input process as the state prepares for a renewal of Title V federal funds. Part of our work includes getting input from community members about their concerns and ideas. Consequently, I would greatly appreciate you taking the survey then sharing it with others you know.

Please open the attachment or one of links below, and complete the survey. Once you have taken it, share the survey links and codes with everyone over the age of 13 in your networks. We want to have at least 1,500 responses from Kansans by the middle of September!

Please let Bryant Miller (Kansas Adolescent Health Needs Assessment project manager, ( or me know  if you have questions. 

Thank you and see at this month's Safe Schools conference in Manhattan, 

Elaine Johannes

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has scheduled another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day for Saturday,
September 27, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.   

“Take-Back” Day provides a safe and convenient means of disposing of unused or expired prescription drugs.   The DEA website,, has the Take-Back banner prominently displayed on the home page and links to the Partnership Toolbox which has a news release template, posters, pamphlets, web buttons and other materials available for download. 
After previous Take-Back events spread over almost four years, a total of 4.1 million pounds – 2,123 tons of prescription medications have been removed from circulation!  This is a result of your continued support and efforts to increase awareness of this critical public health issue.
Last, as you may know, the Final Rule for the Disposal of Controlled Substances was published in the Federal Register and viewable at   It is also available on the DEA website, along with several Drug Disposal Fact Sheets.   For your information, attached is a copy of the Disposal Act: General Public Fact Sheet.
