On Sunday, more than 100 pharmacists from across the state came together to talk about how to provide the best care for West Virginians.
The 42nd annual Ohio-Marshall County Pharmacists Association held the biggest conference in the state.
The meeting talked specifically about re-admissions, and local pharmacists had the opportunity to continue their education through West Virginia University School of Pharmacy.
Don Orlando, a pharmacist at Rite Aid in Benwood said the event is a win-win for healthcare professionals who learned something new, and for patients who now have the tools for a better quality of life.
“The pharmacist is right there each day for you, so you can walk up to him and talk to him and ask him questions and they in turn can help you with information that can benefit you for better quality of life,” he said.
Orlando added that pharmacists are often taken for granted. He says your local pharmacist is highly trained and willing to share information and tips about illnesses and prescriptions.
