Are you planning next year’s programming? 
While we still don’t know when we’ll be able to hold in-person events again, consider an online presentation on medication safety as part of your offerings for 2020-2021!

More than ever, medication safety is a priority. Unfortunately, harmful medication side effects such as falls, fractures and hospitalizations do not stop happening during pandemics. Nor does the need to educate the public about this issue.
