Are non-U.S. online pharmacies safe to use? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration would like you to think they are not, but independent research continues to show that they are. New data published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) found that medication ordered from credentialed online pharmacies, foreign or domestic, was genuine and safe. Only non-credentialed pharmacies sold products which were not genuine. The main difference between credentialed foreign and domestic pharmacies was price: Non-U.S. pharmacies sold the same drugs at an average 51% discount.
As part of its continuing commitment to supporting future pharmacists, Cardinal Health today announced that eight pharmacy schools across the country will receive nearly $1 million in funding through the Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Program.
The company has donated more than $2.1 million to 20 universities through the Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Program since its launch in June of 2011. Participating universities have received scholarship funding ranging from $50,000 to $125,000.
