OGDENSBURG -- Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center will offer free pharmacy consultations Oct. 21-23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. as part of American Pharmacists Month.
Bring your medication to conference room C for a consultation with a pharmacist or pharmacy student.
Every year in the U.S., failure to take medications as prescribed causes more than 1.5 million preventable medication-related adverse events and costs the health care system approximately $290 billion.
“Taking your medication correctly is one the best ways to decrease your healthcare costs. Pharmacists are medication experts and work to help patients make their medications work,” said Karen Peck, PharmD.
