American Pharmacists Month

by pharmacy on October 21, 2010

October is American Pharmacists Month. The celebration that now lasts for a full month originated in 1924 when Robert J Ruth, a North Carolina pharmacist, broached the idea of promoting the profession during a meeting of the American Pharmaceutical Association, now known as the American Pharmacist Association. He suggested a “National Pharmaceutical Week,” and the idea was well received. The first celebration of National Pharmaceutical Week was October 11th – 17th of 1925. Radio stations around the nation aired programs that promoted the pharmaceutical profession. [click to continue…]

Travel pharmacy equals job security

by Cyrus on June 11, 2009

Since graduating pharmacy college, I soon started to appreciate politics. If you work and earn a paycheck, you too should be concern what your government is doing. Whether we like it or not, we are inundated with rules and regulation that affects us every day of our lives.

Hi. My name’s Cyrus Pacis. I’m an RPh on the Go pharmacist and will be taking over the blogging here starting today.

I started with humble beginnings as a pharmacist. I once believed getting a job and staying with that job till retirement was the norm, but I found it totally not fulfilling. Complacency is the evil that we all share in the work place. It brings boredom, which leads to careless mistakes. It brings laziness, which leads to animosities among co-workers.

For the first 11 years as a pharmacist, I found myself in that trap of being complacent. Each one of us went through this. Haven’t you noticed doing the same mundane routine day in and day out?
