Got A Cold? Community RX Can Help

by Donna McCollum

In Nacogdoches, Community RX help and the Nacogdoches Senior Center teamed up Saturday for a free health fair. Visitors were able to get free blood pressure checks. But most of all, they got lots of information about all the services available to the community.

A new service is immediate medication assistance. Eligible patients from Nacogdoches and San Augustine counties who need antibiotics no longer have to wait four to six weeks for the help that they need right away.

Executive Director Sarah Hueber explained, "We're able to fax over a voucher and prescription to either M & S or Stripling Pharmacy. They then can go pick up their medication completely free of charge."

In about six months Community RX wants to offer cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetic medications in a shorter period of time.
