Pharmacy Alternatives (PAL) is very proud of its Clinical Division and the support that we are able to provide to the customers, families, and healthcare providers in the field. If we can provide education in a variety of formats to you, then you can be better informed on those issues closest to the individuals you support every day and provide higher quality care. We provide the services of a fulltime Certified Developmental Disabilities Nurse as a clinical resource to nurses, staffs, and organizations in the field. She can assist in obtaining educational materials, setting up trainings, and connecting you to appropriate resources on the Internet and in your communities, and respond to various and sundry other requests that seem to come up. We will strive to assist you in your educational needs in any way possible.

The newsletter is available by email to all of our customers on a monthly basis, and previous copies are archived on this site.
