About Know Your Medicine

Founded in 2012, Know Your Medicine is a community service outreach initiative started by the University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy students and faculty from the Austin, San Antonio, Rio Grande Valley and El Paso regions. During the 2012-2013 academic year, the first year of our venture, we were able to perform 52 medication reviews and scheduled 36 follow-ups across 4 separate events.
