Happy National Pharmacy Week!

Cheryl A. Thompson

Pharmacy tours, visits to community centers and schools, and site visits for legislators are just a few of the ways ASHP members are planning to celebrate National Pharmacy Week this week. The observance is an ideal time for pharmacists to share with consumers, patients, and other health care professionals the important role you play in providing quality health care.

Radio listeners in major cities, including New York, San Francisco, Dallas, and Chicago, will get that message from ASHP members during radio interviews broadcast this week. ASHP President Debra Devereaux was also on the air in various cities offering medication safety tips.

These activities were planned by the Society to educate consumers about health-system pharmacists and their vital role on the health care team.
