Medieval Pharmacy

In a lunchtime presentation at Darien Senior Center, CT Pharmacy will have some interesting facts on the history and origin of the pharmacy as well as facts about some of the original medications used in pre-historic and Middle Ages.

The history of pharmacy as an independent science is quite old.

The origins of pharmaceutical dates back to the first third of the 19th century which is when the first historiographies; that while not touching all aspects of pharmaceutical history is the starting point for the final start of this science.

 

About Lunch at the Senior Center

Research shows that eating your main meal at noontime, especially as we grow older, has actual health benefits.

We have more time to digest and metabolize the meal. Eating lighter for the evening meal can aid in a better night’s sleep and help with weight control.

Eating at the Center also has the added benefit of socializing with peers and attending some of the wonderful programming offered before or after lunch. Cooking for one can also be stressful.

The cost saving of only having to shop for breakfast and a lighter evening meal is also significant.

So give a meal at the Center a try for $5. Call in for our weekly menu on Mondays 203-656-7490. To reserve a meal, call by 11:15 a.m. the day of — lunch is served at 12:00 sharp!
