October 16–22, 2022 is National Pharmacy Week, which recognizes the vital contributions that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians provide to patient care in healthcare settings such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other types of facilities.
What is pharmacist month?
The month of October is designated as American Pharmacists Month. There has never been a time when the contribution that pharmacists make to our lives, our communities, and our health has been more important, more heroic, or more valued. During this month, which is designated as American Pharmacists Month, we want to honor you for your bravery and celebrate the fact that you have stood by our patients throughout the epidemic and beyond.
Take some time in October to think on what you’ve accomplished, to express gratitude to your friends and coworkers, to talk about your experiences, and to raise awareness about the important role that pharmacists play in society.
Remember to give yourself some time to relax, take some deep breaths, and focus on taking care of yourself. Throughout the course of the month, we will recognize significant events and timelines, share stories, and honor pharmacy professionals who have gone above and beyond.
Why do we celebrate National pharmacist day?
The typical number of colds that adults have in a year is two to four, while children can get up to twelve. If we didn’t have our pharmacists, where would we be? It is time to express gratitude to those helpful employees who have ensured our wellbeing over the year.

The #APharmacistIs initiative was recently begun a little over two years ago, and it links images (along with words of appreciation) to people who assist us with our medications and a great deal more.
