CANANDAIGUA — Community members are invited to gather their prescription and over-the-counter medications to meet with a pharmacist during a free “brown bag” event on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at the Canandaigua Medical Group Pharmacy.

The event will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at the pharmacy, which is affiliated with F.F. Thompson Hospital and located across the street from the hospital, at 335 Parrish St.

Attendees can meet with the pharmacists to:

• Review their medications’ common side effects and uses

• Check for interactions with other medications, herbals, vitamins and supplements

• Ensure they are taking their medications correctly

• Get a cost comparison, to see if the pharmacy can save them money

In addition, community members attending the event can drop off unused/expired medications in the pharmacy’s secured drop box.

Refreshments will be served and attendees will receive a free pill reminder box.

Info: or (585) 602-0300.
