Aging Together Abbotsford 2016

February 18th, 2016

We had a great time this year at the first annual Aging Together Abbotsford 2016! It was wonderful to hear remarks from Mayor Braun, Isobel Mckenzie and Fraser Health. We were happy and encouraged to see that so many people in the Abbotsford community are pulling together for the betterment of senior’s health and well-being – we are looking forward to next year!

PharmacyBC/The Medicine Shoppe is committed to improving and supporting our communities and their health. That is why we have rolled out several innovative service programs, such as: ‘Pharmacy with Care’, where we provide a suite of medication services provided by professional nurses; HealthTab, which enables you to complete a number of routine health tests – such as blood glucose tests – right in our pharmacies and allows you to access your results on a mobile device; and our INSTI rapid HIV tests, offered for free to the community. For more information about these programs and our other services, please visit our website at:
