For people with chronic diseases, failing to follow a treatment plan can mean hospitalization – or worse. But uninsured families living in poverty are often forced to choose: pay for food and rent or purchase medication. NSC believes no family should have to make that choice. As Northern Virginia’s largest nonprofit pharmacy, it acts as a central-fill hub for 16 safety-net clinic partners with 30 locations across the region. In addition to providing low- to no-cost prescriptions to uninsured patients and those with low incomes, NSC works with clinics to improve medical care for the uninsured. Pharmacists also provide one-on-one support and follow-up for patients in need of extra attention. Health literacy programs on nutrition, skincare, immunizations, and more empower patients to lead healthier lives. Last year, NSC filled more than 7,000 prescriptions worth $2.6 million. Fill a script. Save a life.
