Nominations will be evaluated by an independent panel of judges chaired by Pharmacy Times Editor-in-Chief Fred Eckel. The Next-Generation PharmacistTM awards will be presented at a special gala dinner event held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday, August 11, 2013, concurrent with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Total Store Expo.
