What does Community Wellbeing Mean ?

“communication” is an essential part of community pharmacy. That’s not a “buzz word” for us it’s a primary instinct. Human beings are far more complicated then any algorithm could ever calculated. There is a health advantage here unique to this time, this place and the people involved.

“Sixteen Tons” – Thompson Street Medicine Show

“16 Tons” is a hardship song reflecting the tone of American coal miner workers ( late 19th early 20th century ) These tough individuals offered the companies they worked for 100% of their labor force an were paid with notes of debt they incurred through “living expenses. Since the Company Store was the only game in town they were in constant debt to their employers.
Sheriff and the Deputy​ and friends deliver a traditional tone that is deep and sorrowful as a hard hitting blue collar character is molded by the realities of corporate greed. The character is forced to become rougher and tougher in his own world while the truth of his position seems to be an eternal inescapable debt to the Company.
