National Pharmacist Day

January 12 is National Pharmacist Day, a holiday in honor of all pharmacists across America. Pharmacists do much more than dispensing medication, their job has evolved over the years, and now they provide their customers with advice, vaccines, and health care, and are a crucial intermediary between doctors and patients. Some pharmacists choose to follow the research path of the profession, where they discover new medication.

While there is no information about the origins of National Pharmacist Day, it is likely that it was founded by a group of pharmaceutical organizations that wanted to show their colleagues how appreciated they are.
