CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pharmacy Times®, the leading media resource for pharmacists and the pharmacy industry, celebrated American Pharmacists Month (APhM) last month with its annual nationwide #ThankAPharmacist and #PTThanksYou social media campaign. Honoring thousands of pharmacists through its Twitter, Facebook and Instagram channels, Pharmacy Times® outreach helped to bring broader awareness to the profession and the role pharmacists play in modern health care.
Sponsored by the American Pharmacists Association, the goal of APhM is to advocate for the pharmacy profession and generate recognition for pharmacists among their peers, patients and communities.
“Pharmacy Times® remains committed to showing our appreciation every day of the year for all U.S. pharmacy professionals who contribute to the wellness of patients and work to improve the overall quality of health care in our country,” said Brian Haug, president of Pharmacy and Healthcare Communications, LLC, which publishes Pharmacy Times®. “We lend our voice as a leader in the pharmacy community to honor and celebrate all pharmacy professionals who dedicate themselves to help us all lead healthier lives. Thank you to everyone who supported the #ThankAPharmacist and #PTThanksYou campaign this, and every, October.”
Pharmacy Times® Asks Followers to #ThankAPharmacist
During APhM, Pharmacy Times® asked its followers to thank, recognize and celebrate pharmacists through social media with #ThankAPharmacist across all of its social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Pharmacy Times® encouraged followers to share an experience or photo that highlighted the value of the pharmacist. Similarly, followers with video submissions were encouraged to share experiences using #PTthanksYou. By using #ThankAPharmacist or #PTThanksYou and tagging @Pharmacy_Times, followers were able to generate awareness and goodwill for their favorite pharmacists.
Ten Best Posts, Top Three Videos Revealed in Pharmacy Times®
To conclude this annual initiative, Pharmacy Times®’ editorial staff monitored and reviewed #ThankAPharmacist posts and #PTThanksYou videos during the month of October, curating a selection of the ten best posts to be featured in its November issue and three best videos to be featured on PharmacyTimes.com. These top experiences best represent the value of the pharmacist and can be found in this month’s issue.
“The top posts featured in our November issue demonstrate why our U.S. pharmacists deserve recognition for the efforts they extend daily managing patient’s overall health. Pharmacists are truly patient care providers and we are proud to thank, honor and celebrate them for their dedication to their patients,” concluded Haug.
