NEW YORK In conjunction with its partners at the Convenient Care Association, The Drug Store News Group/Retail Clinician magazine will honor three convenient care practitioners with the first-ever Retail Clinician CARE (Clinician Awards for Retail Excellence) Award.
Created to honor in-store clinicians for excellence in patient care, the CARE Award is currently accepting nominations. “Do you or a member of your clinic team have an amazing story in patient care?
