Ticket Info: NC MedAssist will hold a free Over the Counter (OTC) Medicine Give Away Day in Halifax County on Friday, September 30. The event, which is made possible by the Cardinal Innovations Healthcare, is open to any individual or family needing OTC medication. The Give Away will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Halifax Community College in Building 400, Civic Room (100 College Drive, Weldon, NC 27890).

The OTC program is completely volunteer run. Serving 1000 individuals in one day takes many hands to make sure the program runs smoothly and ensures that all participants are served before the door closes. NC MedAssist is collaborating with Cardinal Innovations Healthcare and area safety-net organizations to recruit community members to serve in roles such as pharmacy consultation, client 'personal shoppers', and OTC sorters. Those interested in volunteering can sign up at www.medassist.org.

NC MedAssist's overall goal is to help alleviate the strain on the healthcare system by providing medications to those who normally use the emergency room for reasons such as fever, minor pain relief and treating cold and flu symptoms.
