Little Medical School

Little Medical School Learn to be a Pharmacist Pop-up:

Little Medical School of Greater Pittsburgh brings pharmacy skills, prescription education and the importance of medication safety to children in a fun and entertaining way. Through interactive demonstrations and pharmacy-themed games, kids learn how to fill a prescription, 911 protocols and what it’s like to be a pharmacist. Your child will make their own ointment, learn how your body breaks down medicine and more. We are thrilled to have a licensed Doctor of Pharmacy teach this series! LMS Pharmacist

Little Medical School Winter Program Update (as of 1/30/23):
