Ways to Connect

In the early 1990s, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, Estee Lauder and Self magazine began distributing pink ribbons at events to promote breast cancer awareness.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  

Today, most people are aware of breast cancer, but many don’t have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

If you pick up two prescriptions from the pharmacy and one drug’s label says “take twice a day,” and the second one says “take every 12 hours,” does that mean the same thing? And could you take both medications together?

Unsure? You’re not alone.
