Medications are a powerful and commonly-utilized modality to treat illness and disease. 70% of US adults take at least one prescription medication and 81% take over the counter (OTC) medications. However, rising costs, side effects, and safety concerns can lead to concerns among patients. Please join us for one or all of our events during this four-part Medication Education series presented by KSB Community Wellness.
Each event offers the opportunity to talk with local vendors and a light dinner will be served.
