MINNEAPOLIS — In recognition of National Headache Awareness Week, Supervalu pharmacies will offer special one-on-one consultations with a specially-trained pharmacist to help headache sufferers manage their symptoms, and at the same time, raise money for the National Headache Foundation’s (NHF) Migraine Million campaign.
The in-store headache consultations will start June 7th – the beginning of National Headache Awareness Week – and continue through August 31st. During the two-part consultations, patients will work with a Supervalu clinical pharmacist to determine what triggers may be causing their headaches and how to avoid them. Also, patients will learn how keeping a headache diary can help manage headaches and discuss what prescription treatments are available and may be best for their individual needs.
Select Supervalu pharmacies operating under the retail brands of Acme Sav-On, Albertsons Sav-On, Albertsons Osco, Cub, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s Osco, Shop ‘N Save, Shop ‘N Save Osco and Shoppers Pharmacy will offer the summertime headache consultations in 16 states.
The summertime headache consultations mark the second time Supervalu has joined the NHF in an effort to increase the public’s understanding of headache. In late December, the organizations partnered to offer information about migraine headache and triggers that typically are associated with the winter holidays.
