KMART HONORS GEORGIA PHARMACIST

JULY 01, 2008

Sarah Rowan, PharmD, pharmacy manager in Macon, Georgia, has been named the 2008 Kmart Pharmacist of the Year. Rowan was selected from among 6 Kmart Divisional Pharmacists of the Year honored recently at the chain's Pharmacy National Conference.

Rowan won both the top national award and southern division honors for her work providing important health care services to Macon's 97,000 residents, a third of whom live below the poverty level. She counsels patients on a wide range of health concerns, from blood pressure screenings to diabetes management, and was described as "the best customer-oriented pharmacist I have ever seen . . . the epitome of a team player," by one nominator.

"Since 1991, the Kmart Pharmacist of the Year award has recognized Kmart pharmacists who use their knowledge and resources to improve the overall wellness of their communities," said Howard Kramer, RPh, Kmart's director of pharmacy human resources and government affairs. "Sarah Rowan exemplifies the important leadership role of today's Kmart pharmacist in consumer health care."
