Supporting APhM’s effort to “Know Your Pharmacist,” Pharmacy Times® asks its followers to thank, recognize and celebrate pharmacists via social media with #ThankAPharmacist throughout the month, including “Selfie Day” on Oct. 4 and “Pharmacy Technician Day” on Oct. 17. Pharmacy Times® encourages followers to share an experience or photo that brings the value of their pharmacist to light. As in previous years, followers will also have an opportunity to generate awareness and goodwill for their favorite pharmacists by using #ThankAPharmacist and tagging @Pharmacy_Times. New this year, Pharmacy Times® encourages video submissions by using #PTThanksYou and tagging @Pharmacy_Times.

Additionally, in its November issue, Pharmacy Times® will feature a selection of 10 posts shared during APhM that best exemplify the value of a pharmacist. Selections will be considered from all three Pharmacy Times®social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Followers can submit stories through those outlets for a chance to be highlighted in the top 10 selection.

“Know Your Medication:” OTC Guide™ from Pharmacy Times® and U.S. News & World Report

In today’s health care system, pharmacists provide guidance and information for patients on both prescription and over-the-counter medications. Pharmacists have a responsibility to share these insights, as medical risks increase with the number of medications taken by a patient.
