Dr. Greg Dewey, president, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS) and Dr. Theodore Zeltner, Chief Medical Officer of Whitney M. Young Jr. Health Center (WYH), spoke with WNYT recently about ACPHS’ College Parkside Pharmacy, a student-supported pharmacy, which recently opened inside WYH, a not-for-profit, federally qualified health center located in Albany’s Arbor Hill.  The new location gives City of Albany residents convenient access to affordable, accessible pharmacy services, as well as expanded services such as medication therapy management, bone density/cholesterol/blood pressure screenings, immunizations, educational programs and wellness counseling.  The “win-win” arrangement also gives ACPHS students completing their Doctor of Pharmacy program under the supervision of a full-time, licensed pharmacist the opportunity to reach even more children and adults from medically underserved backgrounds who are in need of affordable, accessible pharmacy services.
