University of Connecticut SCHOOL OF PHARMACY

A Tradition of Excellence: Preparing Leaders in Pharmacy and the Pharmaceutical Sciences Since 1925

Ask the Pharmacist

In a major public-private partnership, the UConn School of Pharmacy and Fox Connecticut are teaming up to bring you the “Ask the Pharmacist” segment on their morning newscast. During these segments, we bring you timely and informative information to improve your lives, save money, and become more informed about your health and the health of your loved ones. This is another example of how the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy exemplifies “Caring in Your Community.”  These segments are coordinated by C. Michael White, Pharm.D., professor and head of the Department of Pharmacy Practice. Remember, while we hope you find this general information helpful, your individual health decisions should be made in concert with your own caregivers (pharmacist, physician, nurse.)

Below are links to the newscasts and additional information that you may find helpful.  Find other pharmacy faculty news tips on our Pharmacy News Flash.
