National Pharmacist Day

January 12 is National Pharmacist Day! Pharmacists play a vital role in your health care and do so much to make sure you are healthy and well taken care of. Do you know a pharmacist? Here are 10 reasons why you should thank your pharmacist today!

  1. They give their patients advice on what medications to take over-the-counter and how to take their prescribed medications.
  2. They monitor the medications you are taking to make sure nothing will interfere with your other medications or supplements, keeping you safe!
  3. Pharmacists improve medication adherence, meaning they make you more likely to stick to your medical plan.
  4. They go the extra mile for their patients. They will stay late if someone needs help and local pharmacists can try and set up payment plans.
  5. You don’t need an appointment to talk to your pharmacist!
  6. Pharmacists work in your local pharmacy, hospitals, and more! If you visit a medical facility chances are a pharmacist helped some time in your interaction!
  7. Pharmacists are medicine experts!
  8. They help you know how to take your medication, whether you don’t know what “twice daily” means, don’t know how to use your inhaler, or have a new insulin!
  9. They can help with lots of medicine-related questions, such as where to get a flu shot, how to dispose of old medication, and why you are taking a certain medication!
  10. Their work is often behind the scenes, so they don’t get thanked for their service, advice and care often.
