Speaking of credit where credit is due
When giving credentials after a name, why do you choose to use "RPh" for those who have a BS degree in Pharmacy? I find the selective use of "RPh" for "BS" graduates rather demeaning. "Doctor of Pharmacy" graduates are also registered pharmacists, so how does this clearly distinguish between a "BS" graduate and a "PharmD" graduate? PharmD is a degree, and RPh is a title. We are all RPhs. Distinguish us by our degrees.
