October 16 - 22, 2016 is National Pharmacy Week
Pharmacy Week, acknowledges the invaluable contributions that pharmacists and technicians make to patient care in. It is an ideal time for pharmacists to acknowledge and celebrate their achievements in ensuring safe and effective medication use and to share those accomplishments with patients, other health professionals, and the community.
CCWV would like to recognize our four CCWV-owned pharmacies in Blacksville, Clay, Rock Cave, and West Milford; as well as our three contract pharmacies in Gassaway, Green Bank and Marlinton.
We are pleased to offer the 340B Drug Discount Program, at all of our pharmacies, for CCWV patients. Established in 1992 by the U.S. federal government, this program requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care organizations at significantly reduced prices.
If you have the opportunity to visit one of our pharmacies next week, please take a minute to visit the pharmacists, technicians and staff and say “Thank You”.

This October, Community Care of WV is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them. If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.
