CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid is asking patients to vote for their Favorite Pharmacist by sharing stories of exceptional service and describing why their pharmacist stands out as part of the chain’s celebration of American Pharmacists Month this October, Rite Aid announced last week.
“American Pharmacists Month is the perfect time for us to honor our pharmacists, who are medication experts and on the front lines counseling and answering patients questions every day,” stated Phil Keough, senior vice president of pharmacy operations. “We recognize that our pharmacists provide exceptional care for their patients all year long, and our Favorite Pharmacist program is just one way we show our pharmacists that their hard work is appreciated.”
The annual program is in its fourth year.
Patients can vote for their favorite pharmacist online at www.riteaid.com or by paper ballot, which they can pick up at any Rite Aid pharmacy. As part of the contest, customers who vote will be entered into a random drawing where one customer will win a $2,500 Rite Aid gift card.
“Patients are always writing to us to tell how their Rite Aid pharmacist helped them avoid dangerous drug interactions or how he or she helped them deal with a new or difficult disease,” said Keough. “We’re proud of our pharmacists and we want them to know how thankful we and their patients are for all that they do.”
