One of the winners in the pharmacist categories will be chosen to receive the program’s highest honor—the 2013 Next-Generation Pharmacist™ award—which recognizes a pharmacist with an exceptional vision for the pharmacy profession or industry as a whole.
 
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.
