AARP provides this event description:
If you are worried about affording the medications your doctors prescribe, you are not alone. The price of brand named drugs continue to skyrocket, outpacing inflation by around 400 percent in recent years. That is why AARP in Mountain Region and community partners are hosting a forum to help you reign in soaring prescription drug prices. Learn about strategies to lower your prices and ways we, as voters, can fight for more affordable medications. AARP will be joined by representatives of the NC General Assembly, the Council on Aging of Buncombe County, and a pharmacist at the Mountain Area Health Education Center.
