NC Med Assist and Vidant Bertie Hospital will give Bertie County residents a chance to stock up their medicine cabinets at their free medicine event on Friday, February 11, 2022, from 9 am until 2 pm. They will hold the opportunity for you to stock up at the Cashie Convention Center, 118 County Farm Road, Windsor.
NC Med Assist is a nonprofit pharmacy based in Charlotte. They provide their clients with free prescription medications to uninsured North Carolina residents who qualify for their assistance. In addition, they provide over-the-counter (OTC) medications for free with their Mobile Free Pharmacy program.
NC Med Assist began offering their services in 1997 with a $55,000 grant from the employees of Presbyterian Hospital. Since then, they have experienced explosive growth as they fill a vital role for economically-challenged North Carolinians. They dispensed $63 million in medications across the Tarheel State last year.
Their goal, as stated on their website, is to “Dispense opportunities through improved health.”
