Community Engagement

Partnerships with Mission of Mercy, Una Vida Sana, Remote Area Medical, VSU Cares, Project Homeless Connect and others offer residents a variety of opportunities to participate in large, interprofessional, community outreach events throughout the year. These community engagement events bring together pharmacy, dental, nursing and medicine professionals to provide health care services for the uninsured and underserved patients of Virginia and neighboring states. Pharmacists play a key role on these teams by providing medication therapy management, point-of-care screenings, immunizations and helping patients overcome access barriers to medications.
