WELLNESS RX SPECIAL REPORT: A NEW AMERICA
As we end 2022 and come to terms with a worldwide pandemic that has killed over one million Americans, it’s now time to reflect on some of the changes, new norms and challenges that our society will face in the years ahead. Some changes will be positive, some negative, but we will be creating A New America that generations to come will be shaped by. Here’s some of the important trends that we are watching and the myriad of questions we should ask ourselves and our community leaders.
Simply Bonnie - by Greg Madden
Bonnie was quiet, but did she have plenty to say. An incredible woman who was dealt a lousy hand but somehow relished playing it everyday.
Community focus is returning
Close to home here in the Catskills while the nation endured a paralyzing pandemic, Ed Ullmann of the mountain top community pharmacy Wellness Rx, figured out that corporate pharmacy and healthcare in America were under-serving those that needed help the most and found a way to change that immediately. He designed a blueprint to open America’s first community nonprofit pharmacy, for the public good of all and mostly to help tomorrow’s kids. He would convert his Tannersville location to a nonprofit business model to protect it and save it from corporate raiders and then open the first “Pharmacy for the Public Good” in Phoenicia, NY in the summer of 2022.
Ed Ullmann is the owner and pharmacy manager of Wellness Rx, a holistic and patient-centered pharmacy in Tannersville, and soon ... Phoenicia! Far from the chain store aesthetic (or lack thereof) the Tannersville location where we met is a meticulously painted Victorian with a wraparound porch. Inside there's a warm general store vibe, with wood floors and pharmacy cases, and a diverse inventory of traditional, natural, and holistic medicine; plus home goods, gifts, and crafts by dozens of local vendors. Ed Ullmann showed us around, and then we settled into a comfortable consultation room, to hear his vision for sustainable rural healthcare.
