Sponsorship

What an unbelievable evening! This is an event I will never forget. The category award I was presented is something I take great pride in and hope every patient who comes into my store feels the presence of that effort.
— Jack Dunn, 2015 Patient Care Provider Winner

“It was also so humbling to share the night with a room full of so much wisdom and hear all the finalist’s stories about how they’re working toward improving healthcare quality.  What an incredibly inspiring and invigorating event!”
— Mel Nelson, 2016 Future Pharmacist Winner

The 2016 awards attracted more than 500 nominations, generating editorial coverage in 5 issues of Pharmacy Times, including a cover story featuring the program’s top winner — reaching a total audience of more than 2 million.
