Alex Cohen parlayed his experience as a blind person (Alex has RP) and his Ph.D. in marketing to co-found Accessible Pharmacy , the sole “comprehensive, home delivery pharmacy service specializing in the needs of the blind and low vision community”. The pharmacy, launched in 2020, states: “We do everything for you: we will coordinate all of the details with your doctor and insurance provider including helping to keep costs as low as possible.” In addition to prescriptions, they also offer over the counter medications, supplements, small medical equipment and health and beauty aids. There are several free packaging options. Accessible’s staff includes both blind and sighted sales and customer service reps, and their website has contact telephone numbers for consultation and information for their customers.
…and a pharmaceutical information partnership available to all
