The Student Stores Pharmacy will be next to the textbook and course materials department on the third floor. Until now, Campus Health Services only had one pharmacy on the ground floor of Campus Health.
“The Student Stores Pharmacy provides a more traditional retail or community-type pharmacy, where our main focus is really filling prescriptions for students, faculty and staff,” said Amy Sauls, Campus Health’s pharmacy director.
While the pharmacy at Campus Health also orders and supplies medications used throughout the clinic and by the University’s sports teams, Sauls said the Student Stores location provides its own added convenience by opening on Saturdays and providing over-the-counter pharmaceutical products.
“We’re one pharmacy team, but with two pharmacies,” Sauls said.
She said two part-time pharmacists, Gretchen Jenkins and Argelia Goodner, were hired specifically for the new pharmacy.
“We want there to be some continuity of the pharmacists there, so they can get to know their patients,” Sauls said.
Jenkins said the new pharmacy facilitates accessible healthcare for students, faculty and staff. Students filling prescriptions also have the option to charge copays and prescription costs to their student accounts.
“With the pharmacy being so visible, we want to be a good resource for students if they have any questions about medications or over-the-counter items,” Jenkins said. “Both Argelia and I are very open to answering questions and talking to students.”
