Bremo Pharmacy, a locally owned and operated pharmacy in Richmond for over 30 years, and the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Pharmacy have joined forces to improve medication management and outcomes for seniors in Central Virginia. Seniors are at increased risk of medication adverse events, side effects, interactions, overlap in therapy and poor outcomes. Many of the symptoms that are considered a normal part of aging, such as confusion, falls, depression and incontinence, can be common side effects of the medications that seniors take. In order to reduce these risks and allow seniors to live more independently, the School of Pharmacy and Bremo will offer a variety of services, including medication checkups, special packaging, home delivery, automated refilling, reconciliation of hospital discharges and personal medication profiles for patients to keep with them at all times.

A place to excel

It's no surprise when a business deal begins to take shape during a golf outing.

Perhaps less common is the business deal that percolates during a youth football practice. But such was the case for Varina District Supervisor Tyrone Nelson.

During a visit to former Varina High School football star Michael Robinson's football camp, Nelson was discussing with Robinson his excitement for the new Varina Library, whose opening last June was at that time forthcoming.
