    October is American Pharmacists Month!

    In honor of American Pharmacists Month, we are celebrating pharmacists' contributions to health care and the positive impact they have on our communities.

    Thank A Pharmacist Campaign

    Throughout the month of October, Pharmacy Is Right for Me (Pharm4Me) will celebrate pharmacists who keep our communities and families healthy through our "Thank A Pharmacist" campaign.  To participate in the campaign, please submit a thank you message to your favorite pharmacists, pharmacy faculty, mentors, or pharmacy students who have inspired you and invite others to do the same!  https://forms.gle/1D7EzwhKL7iy8GzM7. Submissions will be posted on Pharm4Me social media each week in October with the hashtag #ThankAPharmacist.
