Time to Celebrate for Pharmacy!
October is National Pharmacy Month

by Scott A. Meyers, Executive Vice President

Man, summer flew by this year and fall is quickly following.  October is here and with it, National Pharmacy Month, Health-System Pharmacy Week (Oct. 16-22) and National Pharmacy Technician Day (Tuesday, Oct. 18). Lots of reasons to celebrate!  

And how should a Pharmacy Department celebrate? Well, absolutely with cake and ice cream but also with information cards on the cafeteria tables, a poster session in a conference room, staff recognition awards, and a lot more. As a matter of fact, there is no wrong way to celebrate as long as you do something! Letting this opportunity slip away without any fanfare is a missed opportunity to share what you do with the rest of your institution.

So do something original, do something fun, do something scientific or all of the above but do something and send us your pictures with a very brief description (we don’t want the writing component to be a barrier for you to share your celebration!) and we’ll highlight your facility on Facebook and maybe even our website. Let’s see who the party animals are. Celebrate for Pharmacy!
