Medication Review with Pharmacist

Certain medications can contribute to unhealthy symptoms in older adults. The AARP article Are My Mother's Meds Making Her Fall? notes that some drugs, such as beta-blockers and pain relievers, can lead to insomnia, dizziness, vertigo, and falls.

Healthy Aging MV, in partnership with the Falls Prevention Coalition, is sponsoring a table at the MV Hospital's Health Fair, where local pharmacist Tamara Hersh of Conroy Apothecary will provide a free medication review.

How it works: Sign up for a 20 to 30 minute review between 10 a.m. and noon. We have space for 4 reviews, so sign up early. You'll be notified what time your appointment is; bring all of your medications, vitamins, and supplements with you. Caregivers and loved ones are welcome to attend with you.

Saturday, April 6 at 10:00am to 12:00pm
