Gain research-based insights into complex health issues as experts from University of Illinois deliver forward-thinking, holistic solutions for addressing today's health challenges in the Community Seminar Series offered via Zoom on Wednesdays at noon (CST) March 1 through April 19, 2023. Pick and choose programs based on interest. 

Studies show that more than 131 million people or 66% of adults use prescription medication every day. Polypharmacy, or the consumption of multiple medications daily, increases a patient’s risk of experiencing adverse reactions and drug-related health problems (DRPs). In this session of the series, examine the cost and effects of polypharmacy on health records, multimorbidity, and various populations — and discuss equity in implementing standardized prescribing programs. 

CEU's through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois (CEII) are now available.
