For anyone interested in enrolling in Medicare Part D, student groups from East Tennessee State University’s Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy are hosting several Saturday events in Johnson City.

At the events, which are free and open to the public, pharmacy students will guide participants on how to use the online registration tool, explore individual plan options and answer questions. Participants will need to bring their red, white and blue Medicare card as well as a full list of current medications.

Students will be at the following locations on the dates listed:

• Saturday, Oct. 13 - Johnson City Senior Center, West Towne Pharmacy, the Johnson City Health Resources Center (Wellness Center), from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Princeton Drug, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Saturday, Oct. 20 - West Towne Pharmacy and the Johnson City Health Resources Center (Wellness Center) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Princeton Drug from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

• Saturday, Oct. 27 - Johnson City Senior Center and West Towne Pharmacy, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Princeton Drug from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The participating student groups include Gatton’s chapters of Christian Pharmacists Fellowship International, National Community Pharmacists Association and Student National Pharmaceutical Association.

Student pharmacists at Gatton spend hundreds of hours every semester giving back to the community. Learn more about Gatton at www.etsu.edu/pharmacy.
