Wilkes pharmacy students, in conjunction with the University’s student-run radio station, will host a weekly talk show discussing various pharmacy topics. The program will air during fall and spring semesters on 90.7 WCLH from 9 to 9:30 a.m. on Thursdays beginning Dec. 6.
Student pharmacists Dylan Fox and Harrison Ferro, along with assistant professor of pharmacy practice Thomas Franko, will host the program. Each week, a topic related to medication use and misuse will be addressed, including proper medication disposal, the opioid epidemic and how listeners can build relationships with their pharmacists. There will also be time for listeners to call in with their own questions. Listeners can call (570) 408-5909.
