Educating New Mothers
OPA Extern and OSU Pharm.D. candidate Melanie Hawkins presented “Your Child and Medicine: Make it Simple” to the North Pickerington Mom’s Group during her OPA rotation in August. Approximately 15 new moms and their babies attended. She included information on safe medication storage, dosing, and administration; poison proofing the home; when to call the Poison Center, 911, and the Emergency Department; and the education and role of the pharmacist. The moms were very attentive and appreciative of the information Melanie conveyed.
