Dont forget to get refills before AMG
« on: July 21, 2015, 11:37:29 am »
Just wanted to remind everyone that AMG starts on the first of the month and many people get meds refilled at that time, myself included.

I just called my pharmacy and they would have been out of my meds if I had waited for the last minute so heads up folks ... Get your meds in order early !

What is AMG?

AMG is the AIDS Meds Gathering, that happens each year in a city chosen by forum members.  This year it is in Memphis and you can read all about it in the Forums Gatherings Forum.

Betty asked me to check with the hotel to see if there is a refrigerator in the rooms, she has meds that need to be refrigerated. I checked and they do not have them in the rooms so if anyone has meds that need to be cooled bring a small cooler as I am sure you can get ice for it at the hotel.

Curtis taught me a simple trick at one AMG and that is to buy a Styrofoam cooler for your room, then just leave it when you do. Good for meds, beer, wine, sodas, water bottles, gourmet cheese, take home leftovers etc....We must scope out the local drug, convenience and liquor stores...Styrofoam coolers are about $5.

I was going to do this in multiple PM's, but figured this would ensure I didn't inadvertently miss someone. We will be staying in a hotel 1 1/2 blocks from the Holiday Inn, on the same street. Our room has a fridge. If anyone has meds that need to be refrigerated, you are more than welcomed to store it in our room. Also, if you have a cold pack that needs to be frozen for day travel, we are more than happy to put it in our freezer.

Storage of food or drinks will be considered a donation and will NOT be returned  ;)

3 days!!!!
