    A community health fair, hosted by the St. Luke United Methodist Church in Sykesville, MD, took place on Saturday, March 12th. MPhS pharmacists and SNPhA pharmacy students from Howard University and the University of Maryland performed medication regimen reviews and counseled patients on proper use of their medications and compliance. We worked alongside a group of nurses, who provided blood pressure screenings, and education on breast health. The event was a great opportunity for community members to receive their blood pressure reading, and much needed health information. Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success!

    Monday, Jan. 12, marks National Pharmacist Day 2015. What was once a profession solely meant to prepare and dispense prescription drugs is now a lot more intimate. Aside from giving patients advice on drugs, pharmacists are also deeply involved in the health care of patients, especially in poor communities, where going to a doctor’s office can be unaffordable. "The healthcare landscape in our nation is changing and pharmacists are no longer simply dispensing medication," says CVS Caremark’s President and CEO Larry Merlo. "Our pharmacists are also providing important health care services through innovative programs and services across our practice settings."
