Pharmacy Times Editor-in-Chief Fred M. Eckel, RPh,MS, was recognized as a distinguished practitioner-member of the National Academies of Practice (NAP).

?I feel honored by this recognition. I was not familiar with NAP until I received my letter of nomination,? said Eckel. ?To be offered induction into such a distinguished group is an honor I don?t feel I deserve but am pleased to accept.?

He was installed at a gala membership banquet November 3 in which NAP inducted new members from 10 health care professions. NAP was founded in 1981 in recognition of the need for interdisciplinary collaboration in health care. It is comprised of distinguished practitioners and scholars of the primary health professions, now including 10 disciplines.

Eckel is professor and director of the Office of Practice Development and Education at the School of Pharmacy, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Turn to page 16 for Eckel?s Editor?s Note.
