Complimentary Women’s Health Education Sessions

With over 50 years of servicing Burlington as a community pharmacy and resource in drug education, Brant Arts is offering a complimentary community outreach program for women’s health this year.  Our certified menopause practitioners and pharmacists give lectures across Canada to both the public and health professionals.  They have donated their expertise in presenting women’s health symposiums for community organizations that have raised significant funds through their generous contribution of time.

We are inviting requests from large to small groups of women who would like a 1-hour presentation plus question and answer period in the latest findings in managing symptoms of perimenopause, menopause, and beyond.  This presentation would discuss the anticipated changes that occur as women age and provide options ranging from hormone therapy to natural health products to lifestyle suggestions.  You may wish us to be the speaker(s) at a ticketed event as part of a fundraiser for your organization, or to provide education at a lunch and learn during your work day for your staff, or for a group of women meeting socially in your own home, or through a church or other organization.  We do have space available for small groups (5-7 women) at the Brant Arts building.  If you anticipate having a larger group, we can discuss options for spaces if you do not have access to one.

 Please reach out to us if you are interested in this exciting community program. Requests will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.  We hope to provide education to many groups over the next 12 months as a way of giving back to the community that has supported us for so many years!

Have you had your Annual MedsCheck?

Make sure the medications you're taking are working together for your greater good.  

The MedsCheck service was created specifically for people who are regularly taking three or more medications at a time. It's vital that the medications you're taking are compatible with each other if they're going to work the way they were meant to – namely, help you reach your health targets and goals.

A MedsCheck consultation provides an opportunity for you to sit down one-on-one with your Brant Arts Pharmacist to help identify and resolve common medication-related issues so you can get the most benefit from your medication. This medication review can help you better understand your medication therapy and ensure that medications are being taken as prescribed.  

Contact us to find out if you're eligible or to schedule your MedsCheck!
