If your teen needs to take prescription medications, please do the following:

  1. Put all their prescription meds in a ziploc bag.
  2. Select the link below to print and fill out a Prescription Medication Form, and place the filled out form in the bag.
  3. When your teen arrives for the Conference, they should turn in their meds to the youth minister or adult volunteer who is collecting them (the exception to this would be any epi-pens, inhalers, or any other thing that may be needed immediately in case of emergency).
