“Molecules become medicines when pharmaceutical expertise is added” – International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP).
World Pharmacists Day was founded by the FIP back in 2009 to encourage activities that promote and advocate for the role of the pharmacist in improving health in every corner of the world. Following many other national days, World Pharmacists Day has a new theme every year. This year’s theme is “Pharmacy: Always Trusted for your Health”. This theme is important because trust is the key ingredient in what makes a pharmacist successful. Pharmacists are heavily relied on not only for refilling medications, but also for giving advice and guidance when needed. With over 4 million pharmacists worldwide, there’s no wonder why they are the most accessible healthcare professional out there.
Thank you, pharmacists, for keeping your communities healthy and safe. You are beyond appreciated by all!
