The Medco Foundation Joins With the Entertainment Industry Foundation to 'Give Health a Hand' to Communities in Need
Date:10/16/2009

is exploring ways to facilitate the availability of generic medicines to those in communities in need.

The second component harnesses the power of volunteerism. As part of this initiative, the Foundation will solicit volunteers from Medco's staff of 22,000 employees nationwide, as well as enlist the support of doctors, nurses, pharmacists and citizens to help those most in need.

"The Medco Foundation is considering ways to collaborate with those on the front lines of health care - medical professionals in communities in need - to directly provide medicines to those in need and make valuable information available and accessible to them," said Silverstein. "Our efforts are designed to transform dollars into doses of potentially life-saving medicines for people who quite simply are going without, as well as encourage people to give of their most precious resource - themselves - to make a difference in their local community."

The third component of the program will allow people to share potentially life-saving health information with family and friends by using the information on givehealthahand.org, to help ensure loved ones take their medications, watch for drug interactions and clean out one's medicine cabinet of expired and unneeded medications in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.

"The Medco Foundation will help convert crucial information into easy and digestible actions for people to share with relatives and friends, so that they can ask their doctor or other health care provider the right questions," said Silverstein. "Every day, millions of Americans fall through gaps in the health care system. We hope that all Americans will join with us in giving health a hand."

A centerpiece of the iParticipate initiative begins on October 19 when the major broadcast networks and others will spotlight service through scripted programming, segments
