SingleCare’s second annual Pharmacy Awards honors pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, the COVID-19 pandemic’s unsung health care heroes.
SingleCare is now accepting nominations for its second annual Best of the Best Pharmacy Awards recognizing pharmacies, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians who have become the unsung health care heroes, especially during the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
Amid the pandemic, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians have held a firm position on the front lines of health care, dedicating themselves to their patients in these uncertain times. Despite challenges, pharmacists have overwhelmingly expressed their willingness to take on additional responsibilities to support their patients, proving that community pharmacies are a critical centerpiece of pandemic response efforts.
The Best of the Best Pharmacy awards aims to recognize the tireless work of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in communities across the country by encouraging nominations. The winners will be announced on October 1, which is also the first day of National Pharmacist Month.
The awards will honor exceptional pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacies in communities across the country. With these awards, SingleCare will recognize excellence in service, education, savings, and more.
SingleCare also urges patients to share their stories about how their pharmacist went above and beyond to help them. As the most accessible health care providers, pharmacists are ideally positioned to address their patients’ specific challenges or needs—whether it’s by helping a patient save money on a medication, identifying dangerous drug interactions, or providing helpful counseling. To nominate an exceptional pharmacist, visit SingleCare’s website.
Award nominations are open until 11 p.m. EST on Thursday, August 6, 2020.
"We look forward to recognizing top pharmacists across the country with our second annual Best of the Best Pharmacy Awards," said Rick Bates, founder and chief executive officer of SingleCare, in a statement. "Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are heroes on the frontlines for our customers every day and the importance of their service has only been amplified during the pandemic, as they continue to help millions stay healthy with access to needed medications."
