Annual campaign encourages patients, colleagues, friends and family to recognize dedicated pharmacy professionals through social media.
Pharmacy Times®, the leading multimedia resource for pharmacy professionals, will celebrate American Pharmacists Month in October with its annual #ThankAPharmacist campaign, which recognizes pharmacists and pharmacy technicians through Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for their dedication and commitment to improving patients’ lives.
Now in its sixth year, the Pharmacy Times® #ThankAPharmacist campaign honors pharmacy professionals who, this year, are serving their communities by being on the front line during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Colleagues, patients, friends and family members of outstanding pharmacists, pharmacy technicians or others in the field are encouraged to post their messages to pharmacy professionals on social media using #ThankAPharmacist or #APharmacistIs.
“For the past six years, Pharmacy Times® has been committed to honoring pharmacy professionals as vital members of the health care team who make an impact by improving the overall quality of patient care,” said John Hydrusko, vice president of Pharmacy & Healthcare Communications, LLC, the publisher of Pharmacy Times®. “Now more than ever, we look forward to supporting American Pharmacists Month this October to show appreciation for those pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who have kept their community safe and healthy while putting themselves on the front line during the pandemic.”
In its November issue, Pharmacy Times® will feature the top 10 posts showcasing the true value of pharmacists. Additionally, video submissions will be highlighted on the Pharmacy Times® Pharmacy Heroes resource center, which was launched to recognize the contributions of pharmacy staff members on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
