UAMS Students Kick-Off American Pharmacists Month

Posted: Updated:

(KATV) Some Kroger customers got something extra Saturday along with their groceries.

Students from UAMS College of Pharmacy are celebrating American Pharmacists Month by conducting free health screenings. "Know your Medicine, know your Pharmacist" is the theme again for this year. 

Saturday, students were at 29 Kroger pharmacies throughout the state. The free test included checking blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar.

Student Andy Roler says, "We can check their blood glucose levels for free and know immediately if they are at risk or if they do have diabetes."

The event kicked off a series of activities sponsored by the UAMS College of Pharmacy student group, American Pharmacists Association and the Academy of Student Pharmacists.

Kroger supplied the screening supplies for the students.
