Hometown Pharmacist Fills the Bill!
Brookshire Brothers in Ganado will soon have a full service pharmacy to fill the needs of residents in the region.  To add to it, the registered pharmacist at the counter will be East Bernard native Lauren Lyon Kainer. A 2009 Texas A & M graduate, Lauren obtained her Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Houston in May 2013.  She says, "I grew up in a small town and I always knew I wanted to practice pharmacy in a place where I could get to know the people.  I am a small town girl, and Ganado is just perfect for me and my family."  In making the announcement, Pharmacy District Director Keith Moseley, R.Ph. says, "Lauren is a great addition to our Brookshire Brothers' management team. In addition to providing excellent pharmacy health care to the people of Ganado, she will become a vital part of the community, committed to making a difference there."
 
Kainer's skill set will be of tremendous value to the region. Under her direction, the new pharmacy will provide services such as compounding, immunizations against the flu, shingles and pneumonia and provide medication therapy management for chronic illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension.  Kainer says, "This can help improve a patient's quality of life, while decreasing costs."  Kainer goes on to say, "At Brookshire Brothers, we hope to be an easily accessible healthcare provider for the people of Ganado, and I am very excited to be part of it."
 
The new pharmacy in Ganado is set to open July 29th with grand opening festivities scheduled for August and September.  Look for Lauren and her team starting July 29th at their location at 305 West York in Ganado. The pharmacy will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM- 6:30 PM and from 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM on Saturday.
