You're the Soluiton was piloted in 2017 and 2018 by the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention, and the campaign was refined in 2019 to make it easier to economically scale up to reach seniors across the state.  Other states beside Colorado can leverage these tools and techniques to significantly improve their outreach and education to seniors. 
 

Key Tools of the campaign

Educational Placemats
Rack Cards, such as this one: Take Meds Seriously Rack Card
Magnets
Website pages
Stickers with local information (and sponsors)
 

Keys to Scaling Up the Program

Work with local organizations that serve seniors
Engage a large number of volunteers with simple, well-defined tasks
Tap into resources from local businesses and health-related organizations
Keep costs low with high-volume purchasing
