Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences’ Collaboratory, serving Albany’s South End community to improve population health, has been named the June 2024 beneficiary for Hannaford’s reusable bag program.

ACPHS’ Collaboratory will receive $1 from the purchase of every $2.50 reusable bag sold between June 1 and 30 at the 180 Delaware Avenue, Delmar, New York, location.

A Hannaford bag purchase during June will benefit The Collaboratory’s mission of providing access to clinical and pharmacy services for the community in Albany’s South End.

The Collaboratory team coordinates an expanded range of services addressing medication management and health literacy, as well as serving as an expert consultant with the Wellness Advocates Linking Communities (WALC) team through Trinity Alliance. Together, the partners provide community and professional education and work with other public health programs to address system-level improvements pertaining to pharmacy, health care, and to improve individual and community health. In addition, they help community members find a primary care physician, connect to insurance and increase their access to food, transportation and other resources.
