More than 46 million Americans live in rural areas with prevalent health disparities. Health disparities are preventable differences in the burden of illness/disease or in the opportunity to achieve ideal health.
Americans living in rural communities are at a higher risk of disease and disability, with higher death rates and shorter life spans.
Moose Pharmacy primarily serves our rural communities by overcoming obstacles such as transportation barriers, healthcare accessibility, and financial restrictions.
It is believed that these healthcare limitations in rural communities contribute to the higher death rate from heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, complications from motor vehicle accidents, and opioid overdoses in rural communities.
Moose Pharmacy offers a wide range of services, including medication delivery, pharmacist consults, and health coverage counseling. Our pharmacists are skilled healthcare professionals who are well-versed in managing chronic disease states and medication knowledge.
Come ask a pharmacist today to help you better understand what you may be at risk for and what over-the-counter (OTC) products or prescription drug coverage may be right for you! #ThankYouPublicHealth
