MedAssist is offering a free over-the-counter medicine giveaway in Hyde County this month.
Ocracoke residents can submit forms to Teresa Adams at the Ocracoke liaison office in the Community Center from 9 a.m. to noon on Oct. 16 or Oct. 18. Meds will be delivered to the island.
According to medassist.org, NC MedAssist is the only statewide non-profit pharmacy in North Carolina. Through its various programs, they provide prescription and over-the-counter medications to our neighbors in need at no cost.
Although the mobile free pharmacy will be on the mainland on Oct. 20 and the flyer below is geared toward that event, see it for details on how to register to get the meds on Ocracoke.
