Celebrate American Pharmacist Month with Haggen Pharmacy

Pharmacy (health Awareness)

October is recognized as American Pharmacists Month and to celebrate we want to encourage our pharmacy guests to get to know their local pharmacists. Knowing your pharmacist means knowing more about our medications.

Americans spend endless dollars every year on prescription and over-the-counter medications. When these medications aren’t used properly, all that money is lost. Every year in the United States, failure to take medications as prescribed causes more than 1.5 million preventable adverse events and costs the healthcare system $290 billion, the American Pharmacist Association said. When patients feel comfortable reaching out to their pharmacists, the chance that medication errors occur decreases.

Many of our pharmacists offer an array of education, prevention and wellness services to help patients improve their health and reap the benefits of their medications. Some of the services include:

It’s important to use the same pharmacy for all prescription services. This ensures that pharmacists have access to complete medication history when checking for problems and possible interactions.
