    MEDICATION WELLNESS REVIEW

    Grover Center E124

    WellWorks is partnering with Shrivers Health and Wellness to help you make sense of your daily routine. On the first Friday of the month from 10am-2pm representatives from Shrivers Health and Wellness will be on-site at WellWorks for private appointments with our members to offer Medication Review and Medication Counseling.

    What to expect from a Medication Review and Medication Counseling:
    Bring in all your prescription and over the counter medications and have them reviewed by Shrivers' trained pharmacy staff. During a Medication Review, the staff will discuss: side effects, drug interactions, contraindications, proper use, and answer questions. Also during your medication review, they will provide medication counseling which includes: medication therapy management; disease state education; adherence support; food-drug interaction review; and safety monitoring.
