Acton Pharmacy Hosts Lecture on Gut Health




Acton Pharmacy will host a free lecture on gut health from 6:30 to 8 p.m., April 4, featuring holistic registered dietitian Dianne Rishikof and Carolyn Salvi of Vibrant America Clinical Lab. Attendees will learn about the symptoms of varied diseases of the gut and learn tips to optimize overall gut health.

Acton Pharmacy is one of three independent pharmacies that make up Dinno Health. For more than a quarter of a century, Dinno Health has been a trusted provider of pharmacy services and is committed to providing the highest quality of care for each customer. Owned by brothers and pharmacists Saad and Raied Dinno, the pharmacies offer prescriptions, compounded medications and other specialty items such as medical supplies, homeopathic remedies, and a full line of vitamins and vaccines.

The pharmacists—some of whom have worked at the pharmacy for decades—are passionate about providing individualized care, including one-on-one counseling for prescriptions and health issues, and care coordination to ensure that prescriptions are authorized and expedited. They listen to and care about their patients’ concerns and tailor all of their compounded medications to the needs of each individual. They also work very closely with physicians and other healthcare providers to determine the best possible therapy for their patients.

Cost: Free lecture. Fee for optional testing. Location: 563 Massachusetts Ave., Acton. For more information, call 978-263-3901 or visit DinnoHealth.com.
