APhA Foundation, NASPA honor Utah, Ohio pharmacists

WASHINGTON — Pharmacists in Utah and Ohio have won the 2011 Bowl of Hygeia awards from the American Pharmacists Association Foundation and the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations, the two organizations announced.

The APhA Foundation and NASPA announced that the Utah Pharmacists Association had given the award to Kathy Goodfellow, owner of Mountain View Pharmacy in Bountiful, Utah, and that the Ohio Pharmacists Association had given it to Mark Dominik of St. Mary’s, Ohio.

The Bowl of Hygeia Award was established in 1958 to recognize pharmacists throughout the country — including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico — who are seen as possessing outstanding records of civil leadership in their communities. The Bowl of Hygeia, which consists of a bowl on a stem with a snake coiled around it, is an internationally recognized symbol of pharmacy first used by pharmacists in Paris in 1796.
