|American Pharmacists Month|
October is American Pharmacists Month!
Celebrate and Spread the Word!
The goal of American Pharmacists Month is to promote pharmacists as medication experts, an integral member of the health care team, and directly involved in patient care. American Pharmacists Month aims to educate the public, policy makers and other health care professionals about the role pharmacists play in the reduction of overall health care costs and the safe and effective management of medications.
