Newaygo, Mich. (WZZM) - Traditionally when you get sick, you have to go to the doctor to get diagnosed. Then you go to the pharmacy to fill the prescription.
A pilot program here in West Michigan is taking a different approach to that traditional way of thinking.
Hometown Pharmacy based in Newaygo is participating in the project, offering free flu and strep throat diagnostic testing and treatment services to eligible patients.
Jeff Stull with Hometown Pharmacy talks about the project and the qualifications patients must meet.
