Today, we’re celebrating Shennel Sankar, PharmD, a staff pharmacist at Walmart Pharmacy.

Today, we’re celebrating Shennel Sankar, PharmD, a staff pharmacist at Walmart Pharmacy. Sankar has been going into work early to fill and prepare prescriptions, provide counseling to patients, and ensure they have the safest and most effective options for OTC and prescription medications.

Outside of the pharmacy, Sankar also uses social media to educate and inform patients and other health care professionals, which can be especially important during the chaos of a pandemic.

In addition to caring for patients, Sankar continuously tries to ensure her staff have enough immune vitamins, water, and supplements so that they can safely continue to help patients in the pharmacy.

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!
