Celebrating National Pharmacist Day
Each year on January 12, National Pharmacist Day allows us the opportunity to celebrate all of the amazing, hardworking pharmacists in our lives. As such a huge pillar of the medical field, pharmacists deserve the ultimate praise and celebration on National Pharmacist Day and everyday.
The History of Pharmacists
The field of pharmacy dates back several centuries in human history. The first pharmaceutical drug reference book dates back to 1618. However, there is some evidence of detailed Egyptian pharmaceutical records written on Papyrus.
We also have pharmacists to thank for some of the world’s most popular sodas. Coca-Cola was invented by pharmacist John S. Pemberton in 1886, and Dr. Pepper was invented by Charles Alderton, a Waco, Texas pharmacist in 1885. So, Dr. Pepper really was a doctor!
Pharmacists really are the jack-of-all-trades.
The Importance of Pharmacists
While pharmacists are most commonly known as those healthcare workers who fill and hand out prescriptions at grocery stores or drive-through pharmacy windows, they are actually just as involved in other aspects of the medical field. In fact, the field of pharmacy is an ever-growing collective of intelligent and inspiring healthcare professionals working at hospitals, special pharmacies, and clinics.
Why Pharmacists Become Pharmacists
It takes a special kind of person to work in the field of pharmacy. Whether it’s the paycheck, the connection with customers, or the work environment, the factors that draw professionals toward a career in pharmacy are varied. But, above all, pharmacists have a passionate need to help others feel better.
Of course, all reasons are valid and celebrated, as they are causing the pharmacy industry to grow and flourish across the country.
