When appropriately prescribed, administered and monitored, medications can help you maintain health, recover from illness or control symptoms of chronic disease. But as many as 60% of older adults take their prescriptions improperly, which can cause illness and death.

Dr. Kevin Sneed, Dean of the USF Health College of Pharmacy, will present information on what you need to know about prescriptions and over the counter medicines, generics and brand name drugs, and how to use your medications safely. Dr. Sneed will also provide a list of recommended questions to ask your doctor and pharmacist when filling or renewing a prescription.
