A dozen Manchester pharmacy students inventoried drugs for Matthew 25 Health and Dental Clinic last week.Students from the University School of Pharmacy, at Interstate 69 and Dupont Road in Fort Wayne, filled 60 legal-sized pages with records of drug names and their strengths and lot numbers, both in unopened and opened containers.

The records then were digitized in Matthew 25's computers, said Ahmed Abdelmageed, associate director of experiential education, in a news release. “Now all the drugs are accounted for, and Matthew 25 can track how much they have spent on what drug, how many are left on the shelf, etc.," he said in the release.

The students also gained from the 5-hour inventory experience at Matthew 25, 413 E. Jefferson Blvd.

That was part of the goal, said Abdelmageed, who donates time weekly as a pharmacist at the clinic. “We wanted the students to see the value of the service provided by Matthew 25 to the Fort Wayne community and to appreciate the value of every cent spent on every pill.”

Matthew 25 provides free medical, dental and vision services to uninsured, low-income residents of Allen County. Learn more about it at www.matthew25online.org.
