Wilson’s World: NC MedAssist Is Hosting A Free Drive-Thru Over The Counter Pharmacy Event Today!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Wilson was at the McCrorey YMCA previewing a Free Drive-Thru Pharmacy Event‎ with NC MedAssist. The non-profit pharmacy was founded in 1997 to provide free medication to all low-income, uninsured North Carolinians who qualify.
