One of the hard realities of serving in rural communities is that many of our patients have a hard time affording the medications they desperately need.
We’ve located a resource to help with that process. The National Center for Farmworker Health has produced a series of easy-to-read fact sheets about the safest and most affordable medications to treat specific conditions or illnesses. Topics include diabetes, heart disease, menopause, depression, and many others.
Available in both English and Spanish, each fact sheet is based on extensive reports published by Consumer Reports Best Buy Drugs that share the results of research conducted to determine the most effective, safe and affordable medicines available in the market for each condition. Generic medicines, if available, were included in the analysis as well.
What other resources for affordable medications do you have?
