Pharmacy Appreciation Month (PAM) is an initiative led by the Canadian Pharmacists Association. Throughout March, Canadians coast to coast are celebrating the important contributions that pharmacists, technicians, and pharmacy students have made to the health of their patients.
Through the pandemic, pharmacists have been pillars of their community, staying open to help screen, test and vaccinate Canadians. They’ve been pivotal in ensuring that our hospitals, family health teams and more continue to support, educate and guide their communities during these challenging years.
This March, we’ll be celebrating the important role pharmacists play in our health-care system. Each Thursday, we’re looking back at some of the exceptional contributions our students, staff, faculty and alumni have made to help support our health and wellbeing through the pandemic.
- March 10: Daniel Pereira provides leadership for regional vaccination clinics
- March 17: Pharmacist-run mobile vaccine clinic supports vaccination for people with developmental disabilities
- March 24: Vaccine education at Pfizer
- March 31: Pharmacy alumnus and students from Ottawa hospital help vaccination effort in long-term care homes
Stay tuned for our stories this month, and thank your pharmacist, pharmacy technician or pharmacy student this March!
March is Pharmacy Appreciation Month. This month, in our #PAM2022 series, the School of Pharmacy is highlighting how our students and alumni have supported Canadians throughout the pandemic.
