Thank Your Pharmacist
More than 300,000 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in America are providing healthcare to millions of patients every day. Due in great part to their professional knowledge and public accessibility, pharmacists have seen their role continually expand across all practice settings - community/retail, hospital and health systems, long-term care, and government/military.
Today, America’s dedicated pharmacists not only compound and dispense medications, they also offer education, medication counseling and adherence support, vaccinations, prescription cost-savings programs and more to patients.
