National Pharmacist Day
National Pharmacist Day asks everyone to remember all the important people who work in pharmacy. These people see patients when they have a cold, cough, need to refill their asthma inhaler, or have a hangover. Maybe someone is out of toothpaste.
These helpful people can help anyone feel better. Now it’s time for us to celebrate National Pharmacist Day.
Pharmacy was founded in antiquity when plants were used to make drugs. The practitioners may have been called herbalists. The Greek legend of Asclepius, the god who heals, has pharmacy as its roots.
Separation of pharmacy and physicians dates back to 1683, when a law in Belgium was passed that prohibited doctors from prescribing medication to patients. The first pharmacy in the United States was established in 1751 by Ben Franklin, who helped establish Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia.
After World War II, the role of pharmacists was significantly changed when drug science began to change rapidly.
The pharmacists today aren’t just responsible for making pills or potions but also for their storage, proper dosage, advice, monitoring for drug interactions, and many other vital duties for the well-being of billions around the globe.
