Out of an abundance of caution and with COVID-19 concerns rising, the Board has cancelled all live events. The Board will monitor the process of the disease to determine when we can host in person events.
We have restarted monthly "virtual" luncheons with guest speakers. Instructions for using Zoom to attend these luncheons are in each issue of the River Region Report. Make sure you get the link either from the Newsletter or from our email list. If you are not on our emal list, send an email to Steve Linder. Email is on the right side of each page.
Maxwell Pharmacy Procedures Update
Every time I would call the pharmacy line to initiate a new prescription I would hear them talk about secure
messaging as a means to better communicate with them. So I decided to give it a try. I signed up and had occasion to need two prescriptions filled. So I got on line and sent the
request to have them filled. I received an email the following day informing me that it was filled and could be picked up 24 hours from the time I sent the email. Sure enough 24 hours
later I was able to get my filled prescriptions. This was so much easier than calling and then waiting from 48-72 hours to pick up the filled prescription.
