OSWEGO – Pharmacist Jamie Branshaw, RPh, from Wayne Drugs in Oswego will offer a presentation entitled; “Know Your Medications,” co-sponsored by the Oswego County Office for the Aging and Bishop’s Commons on July 12 beginning at 7 p.m.
The presentation is free of charge and open to the public.
The presentation will be held at Bishop’s Commons, 4 Burkle St.
Branshaw, who has 20 years of experience serving the community, will offer an overview of the basics consumers should be aware of regarding both prescribed and over-the-counter medications.
Topics to be discussed include: drug interaction; definition and information about over-the counter, supplements and generics; the importance of taking medications as directed; the role of the pharmacist; and where to find valid information.
“We hear many questions from consumers regarding issues that have to do with their medications, either prescription or over-the counter, and we think this forum will help provide some valuable information,” said Sara Sunday, director of the Oswego County Office for the Aging. “This is a great opportunity for people to learn more and have their questions answered.”
