NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The National Community Pharmacists Association on Sunday named Eddie Glover, president and CEO of U.S. Compounding in Conway, Ark., the recipient of the 2011 Willard B. Simmons Independent Pharmacist of the Year award.
“Eddie’s outstanding leadership and services make him a truly deserving recipient of the 2011 Willard B. Simmons Independent Pharmacist of the Year award,” stated Robert Greenwood, NCPA president. “Eddie has always been ahead of the curve in the compounding of specially tailored drugs, a niche service that gains more prominence each year as independent community pharmacies distinguish themselves from their competitors by finding additional ways to fulfill their patients’ health needs.”
The Independent Pharmacist of the Year award recognizes an independent pharmacist for exemplary leadership and commitment to independent pharmacy and to his or her community. The award is named in honor of Willard Simmons, a former executive secretary of NCPA (then the National Association of Retail Druggists) and long-time NCPA Foundation trustee.
The award is sponsored by Upsher‐Smith Labs.
