APhA-ASP is dedicated to educate others about how to safely take OTC Medications

APhA-ASP are working to educate 5th and 6th grade students and their families about the safe use and storage of over-the-counter medications. Members will educate students and their families on:

  • Reading medicine directions

  • Following OTC label directions

  • Safe storage and disposal of medications

  • Consulting with their parent before taking medications

With the resources available on the APhA-ASP website, our chapter is dedicated to provide this information through presentations and games with children in the community. 

 

APhA-ASP members can play a crucial role in the education and the prevention in cardiovascular disease

While pharmacists are the public's most accessible health care providers and cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be a disease that affects a large percentage of Americans, we are in a role that help with prevention and management. Members can educate community members in:

  • Encouraging lifestyle modifications

  • Monitoring associated risk factors

  • Provide education about heart disease medications
