Kelly Scolaro

Senior PharmAssist

Volunteer for 1 year

Kelly Scolaro spends an eight-hour day once a week volunteering with Senior PharmAssist. She provides medication reviews to Durham seniors and helps Medicare beneficiaries of all ages review their drug insurance choices.

As a full-time faculty member at UNC-Chapel Hill School of Pharmacy, she increases awareness of issues for seniors to her students in the classroom. Dyana Morgan of Senior PharmAssist writes that Kelly “is able to create an immediate impact with our seniors, and then also, influence even more patients by teaching future pharmacists about seniors and their unique social service and health needs.”

A knowledgeable, patient, kind and positive person, Kelly is very caring to all the people she serves. She encourages and even pushes seniors towards better health.

Thank you, Kelly Scolaro, for giving your time to improve the health of seniors in our community!
