Martin's Food Markets pharmacist wins APhA achievement award

Group recognizes Dennis Stanley for travel vaccinations

RICHMOND, Va. — A Giant-Carlisle pharmacist has won recognition from the country's largest pharmacist organization for his immunizations. Dennis Stanley, a pharmacist at Martin's Food Market — a banner under Ahold's Giant-Carlisle chain — won the American Pharmacists Association's 2012 APhA Immunization Champion Lifetime Achievement Award.

"Congratulations to Dennis on receiving this truly well-deserved honor," Martin's regional VP Jim Scanlon said. "Through immunization work with Ukrop's and now Martin's, Dennis has become a recognized expert in travel vaccinations both locally and nationally, training hundreds of pharmacists to implement their own immunization practices."

Stanley has worked as a pharmacist at the Richmond, Va., Martin's store since 1974, when it still was part of the former Ukrop's chain. In 2000, he started a travel clinic at the store at the request of a local church group whose members needed vaccines for a trip to Africa. Stanley had administered more than 2,000 vaccinations by 2005, and was receiving more than 1,000 patients per year for consultations.
