Walgreens to honor 27,000 team members for American Pharmacists Month
The recognition of the pharmacists for their dedication to the care of patients and for their increasing and critical role they play in today's health care.
“In communities across the country, our pharmacists have become an integral part of the health care landscape and a trusted provider to millions of patients every day,” Walgreens President of Pharmacy and Retail Operations Richard Ashworth said. “Being customer- and patient-led in everything that we do starts with our pharmacists and other clinicians on the frontlines, providing personalized care and service.
"We thank them for their hard work and dedication to the profession, and to Walgreens customers and the communities we serve. Walgreens Healthcare Clinic and pharmacy team members are the most accessible providers in the community, and providers that our patients know and trust. As we continue to offer more preventive health care services, work collaboratively with other providers and advocate for all of our clinicians to practice at the top of the licensure and training, we thank our nurse practitioners, physician assistants and pharmacy technicians.”
