For over 30% of Alberta’s seniors, taking their medication all of the time is not an option.  Money and education are the top obstacles.

Researchers are looking to see if covering chronic disease prescription costs for low income seniors and teaching them the importance of taking their medication will help seniors live a healthier life. Not only is there potential for reducing their risk of heart attack and hospitalization, but it may lower the financial strain on the health care system.
