Today, we’re thanking Shady Zarnegin, PharmD, lead pharmacist at a Rite Aid in Los Angeles, California.

Today, we’re thanking Shady Zarnegin, PharmD, lead pharmacist at a Rite Aid in Los Angeles, California. In addition to all of the normal tasks of a pharmacist, Zarnegin has made sure to take the time to educate her concerned patients, even when there is no personal protective equipment available. She also ensures that none of her high-risk patients come into the store by having their prescriptions ready in advance and reminding them to use the drive-through.

Zarnegin has also supported her staff by encouraging them throughout the pandemic and stepping in for those who can’t come to work.

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!
