Pharmacist Guest Expert
The pharmacist guest expert plays an important role in each Stepping On workshop by demonstrating how medications can increase an individual’s risk of falling and leading an informed discussion with program participants about strategies they can use when working with their doctors and pharmacists to minimize their individual risk factors. The pharmacist guest expert participates in the first half of session 5 of each workshop. For more information about volunteering as a pharmacist guest expert, please contact Becky Afzali, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 204-0904.
