Morrisville – From advertisements, a friend’s experience, or a recent article, we often hear how a certain vitamin or nutritional supplement will improve our quality of life. As a consumer, it’s difficult to know which supplements provides benefits, and which are giving false promise. Is it safe? Is it effective? Will the supplement cause any harmful reactions with what I am currently taking for medications? Copley Hospital and the Lanpher Memorial Library are teaming up for a November 12 talk focusing on Nutritional Supplements. Copley Hospital Pharmacy Director Carrie Phillips, MS, PharmD, RPh, will talk about the effectiveness and safety of nutritional supplements.
