What do pharmacists do? That’s what Pharmacists for Healthier Lives media campaign is hoping to show the American public: “Pharmacists do more than fill prescriptions; they are an essential part of the healthcare team.” It’s important to grow the public’s understanding of the value of a pharmacist.
During this episode, Lucinda Maine shares about the new media campaign, Pharmacists for Healthier Lives. This campaign is directed toward women over the age of 35, who end up making most of the healthcare decisions for their family, to educate them about all of the opportunities to receive care from a pharmacist.
