National Women Pharmacist Day

#WomenPharmacistDay (WPD) is today!

Please join us as we celebrate women in pharmacy. VSHP honors, not just the current leaders and the trailblazers who have made such progress possible, but all women in pharmacy, including technicians, pharmacists and students. Their daily commitment to patient care and the advancement of pharmacy practices have set the foundation of pharmacy in our country and the world.

Women pharmacists have been a cornerstone of VSHP and continue to comprise many of the leadership roles: Natalie Nguyen is Secretary; Tolu Akinbu is Board Member At Large; eight of 12 Region Presidents or Presidents-Elect; and nine of 12 committee chairs are women. VSHP has had 17 women Past Presidents, including 11 of the past 30, with Cindy Williams (Immediate Past President last year) being the most recent. Women have made, and continue to make, significant contributions every year to the progress of VSHP.

ASHP, whose first CEO was Gloria Niemeyer Francke, is offering an opportunity to hear women about their professional journeys. Here is a snippet of the offerings, with more available on the ASHP web site:

On behalf of VSHP, we are honored to recognize, and honestly in awe of, the contributions of women pharmacists!
