Taking Medications Safely - Yorkville UMC
"Taking Medications, Over the Counter Supplements, and CBD Oil Safely" is coordinated as part of the Faith Community Nurse Ministry at the church. The speaker is Brian Bock, a registered pharmacist in Wisconsin and Illinois and manager of the Good News Pharmacy at the Racine location. He also is a Pharmacy Clinical Instructor for UW-Madison, Concordia University, and Medical College of Wisconsin. Many people are taking several prescribed medications along with over the counter medications and supplements. It is essential to know if these medications can be taken together safely. CBD is an active chemical (cannabinoid) extracted from marijuana or hemp plants. There is much in the news about legalizing medical marijuana and debates about potential health benefits. Please join us for this educational program. There will be an opportunity for discussion and to have questions answered.
