Where in the USA to buy the medicines we are used to: a list of pharmacies
Corvalol or validol, ivy or plantain syrup, tinctures of traditional Ukrainian herbs - these familiar Ukrainian remedies cannot be found in American pharmacies, only in specialized ones. One of these pharmacies is located in the mountainous state of Colorado, says "Voice of America".
Corvalol or validol for two dollars, traditional Ukrainian herbal fees for four. These and other medicines made in Ukraine can be purchased at a pharmacy in the small town of Arvada in the US state of Colorado.
Fifteen years ago, Yulia Yukhnovskaya, a Lviv woman, immigrated to the United States. An economist by training, she got a job at a pharmacy.
“After a long time spent in the pharmacy, I realized that this is what I would like to do all my life,” says Yulia.
Over time, Julia got the idea to start her own business and offer her compatriots the medicines they were used to. To make her dream come true, Julia went to get a second higher education, and in 2015 she received a bachelor's degree in biology and chemistry. Now she is studying at the Faculty of Pharmacology and dreams of getting a Ph.D.
In 2019 Julia opened her own pharmacy. This is a painstaking business, but worth it, says Julia.
“The first thing you need is desire,” she says. "You need to be well versed in paperwork, you need to know what regulations are required, register a company, have a pharmaceutical education, that is, be a pharmacist."
Julia made her dream come true with her longtime colleague, Nigerian immigrant Samuel Ichi. They did not take a loan for the business, they opened a pharmacy using their own savings. A colleague calls Yulia a reliable business partner. The goal was to offer the immigrant community drugs and supplies that cannot be found in local pharmacies, and a high level of service.
“Our mission is to serve the local Ukrainian community,” says Ichi. "Help them and provide them with the necessary medical and pharmaceutical supplies."
According to Yulia, the pharmacy not only offers ready-made forms, but can also make a drug according to a special recipe for a specific client.
The pharmacy is open six days a week. In total, it employs eight people. There is also a Ukrainian among them.
Former Lviv resident, a graduate of the Lviv Polygraphic Institute, Dmitry Sokulsky, among other things, is responsible for equipment and new technologies. Dmitry, pharmacy manager for medical equipment, has been working in the pharmacy for 3,5 years. He especially likes the opportunity to help people.
In addition to her own pharmacy, Julia, along with her friends, takes an active part in the life of Ukrainians in Colorado: together they cook, read and discuss Ukrainian books, pass on Ukrainian traditions to children.
“Every woman should realize herself, not only as a mother, not only as a wife, but also as a person,” Yulia is sure. “This is possible in this country. And by my example, I convey to each of you that you can. You just have to try. "
