Good Pill Pharmacy Repurposes Surplus Medications For Low-Income Georgians

Apr 22, 2019

From waiting rooms across the country to the floor of the U.S. Capitol, healthcare is one of the biggest issues for American voters.

One of the main challenges in Georgia is access to doctors and pharmacies alike, especially in rural parts of the state. And then there's cost of care. According to the Commonwealth Fund, a quarter of Americans report not filling prescriptions they cannot afford.


Some individuals, organizations and policy makers aim to improve healthcare equity, access and affordability. On Second Thought aims to explore some innovative solutions, starting with a nonprofit that distributes surplus prescription drugs to low-income people.

Kiah Williams and Adam Kircher are two of the co-founders of SIRUM, which also operates the Georgia-based Good Pill Pharmacy. They joined On Second Thought to talk about their work.
