February 5, 2014 - LECOM pharmacy students are kicking off a Script Your Future medication month to spread the word about properly taking prescriptions.

County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper gave a proclamation to LECOM today to recognize the program that's in its third year.

The script your future challenge will give LECOM students the chance to help patients following prescription instructions and completing dosages.

Data shows there are many problems connected to not properly taking prescriptions.

LECOM students created a PSA that will air at Cinemark during the month of February to help raise awareness of medication awareness.
