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 only non- profit pharmacy, it acts as a central-fill hub for 13 safety-net clinics across the region. In addition to providing low- to no-cost prescriptions to low-income, uninsured patients, NSC’s services allow partner clinics to concentrate their valuable resources on delivering direct medical care. Pharmacists also provide one-on-one support and follow-up for patients in need of extra attention. Health literacy programs – including workshops on nutrition, skincare, immunizations, and more – empower patients to lead healthier lives. Last year, NSC filled more than 48,000 prescriptions.
