[OCT. 22, 2004]  In observance of National Pharmacy Week, Oct. 24-30, Helen Feinstein, Pharm. D., will offer two "brown bag" sessions with the public.

Join the pharmacist in Conference Room A in the basement of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital on Sunday, Oct. 24, from 5 to 6 p.m. or Friday, Oct. 29, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Bring your current medications with you, and she will review them for interactions and provide counseling, answering questions regarding medication and vitamins. Anyone taking medications or having questions about medications should plan to attend.

The theme of the 2004 National Pharmacy Week is "Know Your Medicine -- Know Your Pharmacist." Health system pharmacists are medication-use experts who:

  • Ensure that patients receive the right dose of the right medication.
  • Counsel patients on the correct way to use their medications.
  • Make sure that patients respond well to their medications.
