Medication Safety Awareness for the Blind Initiative Info
Jun-14-2017

Dear Lions,

My name is Lion Trish Bissell. I’m a visually impaired Lion and want to share some important information about a worthwhile initiative for your club or district… Medication Safety Awareness for the Blind.

Nearly 14 million Americans, many 65 years or older, have low vision or are blind. And for these individuals, inability to clearly read a prescription label can result in unnecessary injury or even death.

What’s this initiative about?

 

Over the past several years, accessible prescription labels (Labels that talk, large print labels and Braille labels) have become readily available at pharmacies across the United States and Canada.  But there’re still so many people that don’t know they even exist!  This needs to be changed!

 

The goal of the Medication Safety Awareness for the Blind campaign is to get the word out. You can start saving lives immediately by talking about accessible labels to family, friends and pharmacies. You and your Club can participate in a special annual event:

 

MEDICATION SAFETY AWARENESS FOR THE BLIND WEEK SEPTEMBER 9th – 15th

 

It’s easy to get more information about participating… go to this link: http://www.scripability.com/lions-clubs-medication-safety-awareness-for-the-blind

 

 or call 1-800-890-1180.

… and everyone in your club that participates gets a pin!!

Please mention this in your Newsletters. If you would like a 2-minute demonstration on how easy it is to use ScripTalk, please give me a call!

Hope to see you in Chicago!
