Lucinda L. Maine, RPh, PhD, FAPhA, the executive vice president and CEO of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, was given the 2019 Remington Honor Medal at the APhA Annual Meeting and Exposition in late March.

The Remington award, named for community pharmacist, manufacturer, and educator Joseph P. Remington, recognizes distinguished service on behalf of American pharmacy, either culminating in the past year or over a long period of outstanding activity or fruitful achievement. 

Maine, a resident of Arlington, VA, was recognized for her decades of excellence as a pharmacy leader on both national and global levels, for her work as a role model and mentor, and for creating strategic approaches to fulfill a vision for pharmacy and pharmacy education.
