At Mint Health+Drugs, we’re more than just a pharmacy. We’re committed to making our communities healthier places.
Mint Communities is one of the ways we work together with organizations such as non-profits, businesses, governments and health organizations to make a difference in the lives of Albertans. We believe in supporting causes that matter in our communities through health and social programs and collaborations with organizations—large and small. Our guiding principles motivate us to improve lives, strive for innovation in our work, and nurture and teaching families.

Not all of our patients have the means to visit us so we worked out a better way to reach out to them. Our Adherence and Community Engagement (ACE) team is a shining example of that approach—directly supporting marginalized individuals in our communities. Our pharmacist-led outreach team saw that many people were living with homelessness, substance use disorders, mental health concerns, and experiencing multiple barriers to accessing a Mint Health+Drugs pharmacy. They also may be unable to come to the pharmacy for daily medications, to help support them, we work collaboratively with Alberta Health Services and the Boyle-McCauley Health Centre, an outreach program so they can get the help they need.
We’re proud to partner with many great organizations including the Alex Community Health Centre, Telus Health, Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre, Little Warriors and the Robin Hood Association on making an impact in our communities.
We are excited to have partnered with APSA for our annual one of a kind tournament.
Pharmacy students across all 4 years of the program have been divided into 10 different teams.
The winning team will be awarded the coveted and elusive Mint Communities Cup at Blue & Gold this Spring.
We had a panel speakers and students were able to ask questions about anything from practice environments to income.
We ensured students had transparent and open discussions. Over 200 students came which was one of the biggest turnouts if not the biggest turnout for APSA events this year!
