VHU Adds New Features

Published Online: Sunday, May 1, 2005

Retail pharmacists and health care professionals can take advantage of Pharmavite's Vitamin Herb University (VHU). The company has revised its on-line dietary supplement information for pharmacists (www.vitaminherbuniversity.com) by updating the entire herbal section, adding detailed clinical data, and launching a new, accredited continuing education program on heart health.

"The Vitamin and Herb University helps pharmacists stay informed on proper supplement use. As we introduce new products, it's important to ensure [that] pharmacists have access to the latest science, including detailed drug-nutrient interaction data," said Rachel Agnew, RD, of Pharmavite professional education.

VHU was developed to help retail pharmacists and health care professionals have immediate access to detailed dietary supplement information. "Pharmacists can share VHU information with customers, to help them make the right choices to stay healthy," Agnew added.
