With National Prescription Drug Takeback Day set for April 27, “Health Care Heart to Heart” podcast host Jeffrey P. Gold, MD, chancellor of UNMC, speaks with Ally Dering-Anderson, PharmD, clinical associate professor of pharmacy practice and science in the UNMC College of Pharmacy.

The latest episode of the podcast now is streaming.

Dr. Dering-Anderson and Dr. Gold’s wide-ranging conversation includes a discussion of how Dr. Dering-Anderson decided to become a pharmacist, which involved a student teaching experience. Dr. Dering-Anderson also explains why removing no-longer-in-use prescription drugs from the home is important, how pharmacists can help people who may have questions about their medication and how, in Nebraska, every day is drug takeback day.

“Several years ago, the Nebraska Pharmacists Association created Nebraska Meds, which took the help of the Unicameral, and the governor and the department of health,” she said. “Together, pharmacies in Nebraska accept the return – we don’t resell them, we make sure that they’re destroyed correctly – of drugs that you don’t want in your home any longer. And we do that all the time.”

“Health Care Heart to Heart” posts new podcasts every other week, as Dr. Gold speaks to national, regional and local health care leaders on issues of importance. On each new episode, Dr. Gold and his guests will share information, explore health care challenges and opportunities and leave listeners thinking about how they, too, can make a difference. 

“Health Care Heart to Heart” episodes will be updated on the official podcast website and can be streamed on the Spotify and Apple Podcasts platforms.
