Hill Drug’s Heather Stallings Talk on Making Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Life Easier June


When the Easton CMT Support and Action Group meets on Saturday, June 7, from 10 AM until Noon at the Talbot County Free Library, the guest speaker will be Heather Stallings of Hill’s Drug Store.

Ms. Stallings, who has been responsible for all medical equipment at Hill’s since 2001, plans to tell the group about the many ways that services provided by Hill’s can help to make lives easier for those with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disorder.
Whether it is orthopedic shoes, canes and walkers, assist chairs or a long list of other services, Ms. Stallings will illustrate that life can be made easier with proper equipment. She will also talk about how to deal with Medicare billing for prescribed medical equipment.

In addition to the featured talk, members will discuss what they learned when they were recently invited to tour the National Institutes of Health, National Center for Translational Science CMT lab in Rockville. At the CMT lab they were introduced to screening robotics, illustrations of how CMT cells respond to candidate compounds, viewed CMT1a cells through the microscope and were able to speak with chief scientists in the lab. The report should be most encouraging and informational.
Please plan to attend the June 7 meeting, which is open to the public.
