Eric, 60, of Cincinnati, OH, gets his blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes prescriptions filled at the St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Pharmacy. Pharmacist Lydia Bailey has seen Eric every month for the past six months, checking that his medicine is working properly and that he’s eating right and hitting the gym. His A1C level, which tests diabetes control, has settled from an alarming 11.3% down to the goal value of 7%.
From my perspective as a pharmacist, says Bailey,
It’s a miracle. With his health stabilized, Eric can spend time with his grandchildren as well as care for his aging parents and look for work.
They’re nice people to be around, Eric says about the staff at St. Vincent de Paul Charitable Pharmacy.
Every time I come here, I feel welcome.
