Reflecting on 2023 American Pharmacists Month

October has been a busy month with a range of awareness campaigns including Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM)National Pet Wellness Month and National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)

Most importantly, October shined a light on independent community pharmacies with American Pharmacists Month. We saw a lot of social media posts and videos celebrating the impact pharmacists make on people’s lives, including a number of articles on Health Mart pharmacy teams that are doing great work:


Of course, while the celebrations may end for American Pharacists Month on Oct. 31, the Health Mart team continues to celebrate independent community pharmacy all year long.

The team is gearing up for the 2024 Health Mart Pharmacy of the Year nomination period, beginning in January 2024. If you feel like your shop has a great story to share, please reach out to your sales representative to discuss your nomination. Or you can send the team a private message on McKesson ideaShare social media channels including InstagramFacebook and LinkedIn.

“My advice to others who want to be nominated for Health Mart Pharmacy of the Year is to continue putting the patient first and tell your story. We are all doing amazing work under difficult circumstances. I learn from other pharmacists almost every day,” said Pete Crouch, RPh, Eden Drug owner and 2023 Health Mart Pharmacy of the Year winner.
