It’s time to get your prescription filled: we’re looking for a city in western Canada where a one-of-a-kind pharmacy opened its doors this week.
It’s a pharmacy that serves only women. Listen to the interview below to find out why a local women’s health group thought a women-only pharmacy was needed.
But first name the city that is at the center of Western Canada’s biggest metropolitan area. It’s sandy beaches and stunning mountains make it a big draw for tourists. There’lll be a lot of them coming next year, when the Winter Olympics are held there.
…. and the city we’re talking about is Vancouver, British Columbia.
Lu’s Pharmacy is the name of the place, the media in Canada has dubbed it North America’s first pharmacy just for women. And its operated by the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective. Lisa Mullins talked with Caryn Duncan, the group’s executive director.
