Dispensing Hope – Matching Medication Surplus with Need

Every day, women, men and children across the country, and our world, suffer illness because they can't afford medication. As the church’s ministry of health care, our commitment to stewarding resources in order to extend help and hope to those persons in need calls us to look for ways to assist our friends, family, and community neighbors. This webinar offers information about a viable solution that not only gets medications into the hands of those who need them, but also, provides a means for eliminating pharmaceutical waste: The Dispensary of Hope, a subsidiary of St. Thomas Health in Nashville, Tenn. As a national distribution center that connects a national network of medication donors with safety net access sites, the Dispensary of Hope is a resource Catholic health care can utilize to carry out its mission of helping poor and vulnerable persons in their communities. In this important webinar, you will: learn more about the Dispensary of Hope, how the Dispensary of Hope impacts both the health of the community and the environment, and how your organization might take advantage of the Dispensary of Hope.
