Six pharmacy students volunteered at Faith Family Medical Clinic on 21st Avenue North on March 21. They reconciled medications with people with diabetes at the clinic, which offers the service without charge. The students worked under the supervision of Belmont College of Pharmacy Director of Experiential Education Mark J. Chirico and served 28 patients. It was the first event of its kind at this clinic, and the students plan to volunteer at the clinic each quarter.
“I had one provider remark how much easier her job was when she saw the patients after they had already met with pharmacy. This was a big day for Faith Family, Journey to Health and many of our patients. We received so much positive feed back that we will definitely be offering this again,” said Faith Family Medical Clinic Director of Operations Joshua Southards.
