How a Pharmacy Background Can Help with Drug Abuse Prevention

Larry Schieber, RPh, pharmacist and owner of Shieber Pharmacy in Circleville, OH discusses how a pharmacy background can help with drug abuse prevention efforts at the Cardinal Health Retail Business Conference in Nashville, TN on July 19, 2019.

Larry Schieber, RPh: As an independent pharmacist I've been very involved with the opioid crisis; it's quite a problem in our area. And through connections that I've had through the pharmacy and relationships that I've had, I wound up on our county opiate task force, and that kind of opened up opportunities like this, like naloxone distribution and programs like that.
