HOUSTON The Professional Compounding Centers of America has named an Arkansas man its pharmacist of the year.
The PCCA announced Monday that it had given the Dr. M. George Webber Compounding Pharmacist of the Year to Eddie Glover of U.S. Compounding in Conway, Ark., for “service excellence to patients, healthcare providers and pharmacy colleagues.”
PCCA president L. David Sparks presented the award to Glover on Oct. 9 during the company’s international seminar in Houston.
Unlike regular pharmacies, which dispense medications bought from wholesalers, compounding pharmacies prepare customized medications based on parameters specified by prescribers.
“[Glover] has contributed significant time and effort to ensure that compounding remains a viable and healthy profession, for now and for the future,” Sparks said in a statement.
