Good fun and good health go hand and hand at the first ever health carnival at the HealthWise Pharmacy.

The Pharmacy opened it’s doors to the public earlier on the campus of Ohio Northern University’s pharmacy college.  Today (6/09/18) they invited the public in to play some games, get their blood pressure and blood sugar tested and offer health advice on sun safety and how to make a plan to quit smoking. Besides being a community pharmacy, HealthWise’s main goal is to offer preventative care and disease management services for people associated with the university, but also the residents in the surrounding area.

 Katie Westgerdes, Pharmacy Manager, ONU HealthWise Pharmacy says, "Preventative medicine is a Pharmacist bread and butter.  It’s one of those things that we believe will help impact the cost of healthcare down the road.  It’s one of those things that HealthWise is very involved in and is very important to us."

ONU HealthWise will be taking their mobile clinic to do do a few outreach events around Hardin County in the next few months, including stops at Forest Tree Town Festival, the Hardin County Fair and Ada’s Harvest and Herb fest this fall.
