To a better world where the poor have their food and medicine
What it does Predict the end of the product's expiration depend on its Consumption rate
How I built it With Excel formula
Challenges I ran into You can learn a new thing every moment
Accomplishments that I am proud of My worksheet run and its predict expiration
What I learned First, it was just a worksheet to help me in my role as warehousing manager to decreasing the expire date in our warehouse, However, when I think in that worksheet and try to develop the idea My research drives me to -The Myth of Drugs Expiration Dates is a global impact-
"One pharmacist at Newton-Wellesley Hospital outside Boston says the 240-bed facility is able to return some expired drugs for credit but had to destroy about $200,000 worth last year. A commentary in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings cited similar losses at the nearby Tufts Medical Center. Play that out at hospitals across the country and the tab is significant: about $800 million per year. And that doesn’t include the costs of expired drugs at long-term care pharmacies, retail pharmacies and in consumer medicine cabinets."
