Katy's Kids

Katy’s Kids was developed in 1988 as an educational program designed to teach young children about appropriate and responsible medication use. The most important part of this program is the volunteer pharmacist. It is their efforts, combined with the easy-to-present program materials, which will stress the importance of using prescription medications properly. If children can grasp that important concept at an early age, perhaps they will have an increased appreciation and compliance with their medications and be less likely to become involved with harmful drugs later in life.
