Make an Impact with Empowered Flower Girl’s Girl Course and Coaching Program

 Empowered Flower Girl, a social enterprise on a mission to transform the way young people people to one another and themselves, wants to help as many youth advocates as possible make a difference in the lives of young people.

The past few years have been challenging for students – in particular, girls and gender expansive youth. Recent reports have shown that they are being harassed online at alarming rates. And their self esteem is being impacted.

Empowered Flower Girl recognizes it can be a struggle for girls to find their place in the world – from social pressures to feeling overwhelmed by emotions. But there are strategies that can help them reach their full potential.

That’s why the company launched Girl World Peace Academy – a virtual course plus 1:1 coaching program providing guidance for educators, counselors and afterschool/non-profit professionals to make a difference in the lives of young people.

“Since launching Girl World Peace Academy, our dedicated alumni have made significant impacts in their communities. Each of these women have grown their companies/organizations, while also empowering girls and young women in a way that is both inspiring and life-changing'” said Rasheda Kamaria Williams, chief empowering officer and founder of Empowered Flower Girl.

“From Michigan and Ontario to South Carolina and Illinois, they are making an indelible mark on the world around them. We want to help others do the same. Our young people need us.”

This Black Friday (Nov. 24) through Cyber Monday (Nov. 27), Empowered Flower Girl is offering an additional $50 off Girl World Peace Academy enrollment as well as some amazing bonuses for the first 10 registrants.

Addressing the Impact of Heat on Medications During Transportation: PMC Pharmacy Advocates for Private Hand Delivery to Safeguard Patient Safety

 With growing concerns over rising temperatures in the Delaware Valley, PMC Pharmacy emphasizes the critical need to address the potential impact of heat on medications during transportation. The effects of heat on various medications can put patients at risk of Adverse Drug Events (ADEs), leading to potential hospitalization and compromised health outcomes.

The impact of high temperatures on medications can vary depending on the specific drug, potentially rendering them less potent or entirely ineffective. Changes in physical properties, such as softening, melting, brittleness, or alterations in color, texture, or consistency, can hinder proper dissolution or absorption in the body. Moreover, prolonged exposure to heat can cause medications to expire earlier than expected, posing efficacy and safety concerns. Heat-sensitive medications, like insulin, may lose their effectiveness, further jeopardizing patient safety. Additionally, pressurized containers, such as inhalers, may be at risk of leakage or explosion, potentially leading to injuries or contamination.

Despite these risks, traditional mail order pharmacies expose medications to prolonged transit times and various external factors, including extreme temperatures and excessive humidity. While some medications may be more heat-resistant, it is essential to store them in cool, dry places, away from direct sunlight or heat sources.

PMC Pharmacy, operating in Montgomery County, is committed to prioritizing patient safety through its innovative private hand delivery service. PMC Hand Delivery ensures that medications are transported directly from the pharmacy to the patient’s doorstep on the same day, eliminating the need for regional stops or sorting centers, and reducing the time medications spend in potentially unfavorable conditions. This proactive approach significantly mitigates the adverse effects of heat-induced degradation of medications, offering patients an optimal solution for safeguarding medication integrity.

By maintaining direct communication with patients, PMC Pharmacy further strengthens the integrity of the delivery process, providing reassurance and peace of mind to those in their care.

“We firmly believe that private hand delivery is a superior alternative to traditional mail order services,” states Brian Dunleavy, CEO of PMC Pharmacy. “Our patient-centric approach and unwavering commitment to medication safety make PMC the trusted choice for mitigating the adverse effects of heat on medications.”

PMC Pharmacy, a Prescription Management Company serving Patients, Providers, Medical At Home, and Long Term Care Facilities in the Delaware Valley, remains dedicated to ensuring the well-being of its patients through innovative and patient-focused solutions.
