Stop Drugging Our Elders Movement Goes to Oxnard

by Robert Martien, CANHR Operations Manager

CANHR’s Campaign to Stop Chemical Restraints in Nursing Homes will shift to Oxnard where on March 24, it is co-sponsoring a symposium to elucidate the drugging problem and submit proven solutions.  The “Toxic Medicine Symposium” will be an all-day affair, held at the Residence Inn.  The Symposium will be attended by more than 200 long-term care providers, consumers, regulators, and advocates and will feature guest speakers who know the extent of the drugging problem and, more importantly, have proven strategies for solving it.

The Symposium is made possible by a generous grant from the S.L. Gimbel Foundation Fund Orange County Community Foundation and is co-sponsored (and tirelessly supported) by the Ventura County Ombudsman Program.
