Understanding Drug Interactions

Frank Materese

BS Pharm., Pharm. D.


Frank Materese is the Pharmacy Director at Twin Cities Hospital and works closely with the Medical Staff to provide the best pharmaceutical care possible. He has been a critical care pharmacist for the past 37 years and proudly served in the United Stated Air Force where he was recognized as the Air Force Pharmacist of the Year in 1993. Frank holds a Doctorate Degree in Pharmacy from the University of Maryland and has been a resident of the Emerald Coast since 1992. When not practicing Pharmacy, he can be found restoring muscle cars.

Frank's presentation, Understanding Drug Interactions, will review how the body handles medications, how aging modifies this process, and how one drug impacts another and may cause harm. A review of how herbal, OTC, and foods can add to these interactions and ways to minimize these interactions will be presented.
