Dyslexia: Basic Facts

Licensed psychologist Dr. Dawn Doup recently opened Foundations Dyslexia and Learning Centers with two colleagues in order to provide services for children, adolescents, and adults with dyslexia.  Dyslexia is a learning disability that includes difficulties with accurate or fluid word recognition, poor decoding, and poor spelling abilities.  It impacts one’s ability to read and write and often affects an individual’s self-image due to feeling less capable than others.  The effects of untreated dyslexia can have a long-term impact including problems with education and job performance.  Doup will discuss symptoms of dyslexia as well as how it is evaluated and interventions that help with both children and adults.

Yellow Jug Old Drug Program

Started by the Great Lakes Clean Water Organization in 2008, the Yellow Jug Old Drug Program has partnered with Pharmacy Care Solutions in Columbus, Indiana to provide secure and responsible drug disposal.  The Yellow Jug Old Drug Program addresses the fact that there are very limited ways to dispose of unwanted drugs.  Now, consumers can take their unwanted medications to Pharmacy Care Solutions, located at 2323 N. Marr Road, Columbus year-round for a safe disposal option while reducing the amount of chemicals showing up in our water.  
The Yellow Jug Old Drug Program not only decreases the volume of expired or unused prescription d​rugs in our medicine cabinets, it could also have a beneficial impact on the environment and the state’s fresh water supply.
