Pharmacy Students Hold Script Your Future Events
Posted March 9, 2014
Student pharmacists from Western New England University and nursing students from American International College partnered to promote medication adherence and general health awareness as part of the Script Your Future campaign.
The two largest events of the campaign were recently held at the Mason Square and Wilbraham Senior Centers on Thursday, February 27 and Friday, February 28. The focus of the campaign was on medication adherence related to chronic disease states such as diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory disease. Students conducted blood pressure screenings, blood sugar testing, medication adherence counseling, and demonstrations on the proper use of respiratory inhalers and glucometers. “Both of our events were very successful and we look forward to continuing our partnership with AIC next year to hold future community events.” said pharmacy student Victoryn Williams.
