Empowering communities: ACSOM and Jolly’s Pharmacy’s shared vision for Dominica’s health


In a groundbreaking collaboration aimed at fortifying community health, the American Canadian School of Medicine (ACSOM) has teamed up with Jolly’s Pharmacy, forging a powerful alliance to actively contribute to the well-being of Dominica. This joint initiative reflects a shared commitment between ACSOM and Jolly’s Pharmacy to education, health, and community development. 

World Diabetes Day Event at Jolly’s Pharmacy:

A standout event in this dynamic partnership was the recent World Diabetes Day event at Jolly’s Pharmacy on November 14th. ACSOM students, faculty, and staff actively participated, focusing on raising awareness about diabetes and providing essential health screenings to the community. The engagement included information sessions, personalized consultations, and a Cardio Jam class, emphasizing the importance of physical activity in diabetes prevention.

Dr. Lloy Wylie, PhD, community engagement lead with ACSOM, notes the value of this experience for students. “Medical students gain important skills when they get out of the classroom and spend time learning in the community. The people of Dominica can teach us so much about their health challenges and about the care they want and need. And that will make our students better doctors.”

Fostering Health and Wellness in Dominica:

ACSOM believes in the transformative power of education and proactive healthcare. By actively participating in events such as World Diabetes Day at Jolly’s Pharmacy, ACSOM not only contributes to local health awareness but also underscores its commitment to being an integral part of Dominica’s growth.

Charting the Path Forward:

As ACSOM continues to grow and strengthen its roots in Dominica, the institution remains dedicated to engaging with the local community in meaningful ways. From educational initiatives to health-focused events, ACSOM is actively exploring. 

Connecting Communities with ACSOM:

ACSOM is open to community collaborations and partnerships and welcomes inquiries from individuals and organizations interested in joining hands to build a healthier, more informed Dominica.

    Just wondering if Blackmore will attend this rally and throw his full support behind all the women in Dominica who have been subjected to unspeakable domestic violence.

    Some of these women have lost limbs, others maimed, a few their unborn babies, and some too many their lives.
