Today, we’re celebrating Katherine Hicks, RPh, for her work at the Community Medical Clinic of Aiken County (CMCAC) in South Carolina.

CMCAC is a free medical clinic serving uninsured and low-income residents of Aiken County, who are often unable to afford their medications, according to executive director Jamie Mothkovich, MSIHCM, CPhT. They treat chronic health issues from hypertension and diabetes to seizures and thyroid diseases.

“Katherine fills and dispenses all medications, mostly on her own, for all 574 patients,” Mothkovich said in a message to Pharmacy Times®. “She is dedicated to serving our community and our patients. We could not provide the services that we do without her as our pharmacist.”

Pharmacy Times wants to celebrate the amazing pharmacy staff members who are on the front lines every day. Nominate someone in your pharmacy by emailing AAntrim@pharmacytimes.com with their name, position, and why they’re a hero!
