PRESCOTT VALLEY – MATFORCE extends its sincerest thank you to Susan Wilson, Fry’s Pharmacy Manager in Prescott who serves on the MATFORCE Pharmacy team, for making a $500 donation to the organization.
Wilson received the $500 as an award from the Cardinal Health Generation Rx Champions for her role in community-based prescription drug abuse prevention, and she generously forwarded the prize money to MATFORCE. The award honors a pharmacist who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to raising awareness of the dangers of prescription drug abuse among the general public and among the pharmacy community. Wilson received the award at the Arizona Pharmacy Association Annual Convention on June 10.
“We are so very grateful to Susan, not only for her donation, but also for her positive contribution in helping our community find effective ways to reduce prescription drug abuse,” MATFORCE Executive Director Merilee Fowler said. “She has helped in so many ways, including being a leader in promoting use of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, which helps stop suspected drug abuse or diversion for illegal sale.”
