The Auburn University, Harrison School of Pharmacy provides free Health and Medication Monitoring Services to individuals in the Auburn/Opelika area who are taking four or more prescription medications. Student Pharmacists provide assistance in understanding and following medication schedules, addressing any concerns participants may have about their health condition or medications, reviewing medications for any potential problems, looking for cost savings, checking blood pressure and/or blood-sugar levels between doctor visits, and helping fill pill boxes, if desired.
This program allows an individual from the community to participate in the education of future pharmacists by sharing what it is like to live with a chronic health condition and it gives students an opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom. This allows the School of Pharmacy and its students to be actively involved in the health and wellness of our community.
For more information or to volunteer to help educate the next generation of pharmacists, please call Shannon Jones at 334-844-8345.
