National Check Your Meds Day is October 21

Independent community pharmacists are one of a community's most accessible health care providers, delivering medications and expertise daily to improve the lives of millions of Americans. 

National Check Your Meds Day on October 21, 2017 is sponsored by Consumer Reports and others, including the Department of Health and Human Services and the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA). 

This inaugural event is designed to encourage consumers to bring their prescription medications and supplements to their local pharmacies for brown bag medication reviews.

NCPA has created a helpful TOOLKIT for pharmacists with flyers, videos, appointment cards, workflow suggestions, documentation sheets and much more.

Is your pharmacy or practice planning on participating in National Check Your Meds Day on October 21? If so, let us know! Email tara.trujillo@state.co.us and tell us about it.
