Pharmacy BINGO at East Rockingham Senior Center

bingoLeah Belcher, Pharmacist with Elkton Family Pharmacy, offered a first for 23 East Rockingham Senior Center members on April 29: Pharmacy BINGO! Ms. Belcher asked multiple questions and had pre-printed paper with the answers on them so that players could mark the answer if it was listed on their sheets.

Some of the questions included: “What is the vaccine for shingles?” “What are the types of Durable Medical Equipment?” and “What Class Drugs are available without a prescription?”

The bonus for those who called BINGO was an array of prizes from packages of socks to a portable first aid kit, all of which were very much appreciated by the recipients.

Ms. Belcher has visited the ERSC on a few occasions, always offering useful tips to keep us healthy!

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
