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., FCP, FCCP professor and head of the Department of Pharmacy Practice. This TV segment was initiated on March 26, 2013 and 162 topics have been presented by December 31, 2016. 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) and while segments are up to date at the time of airing, may be supplanted by newer information in the future.
