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

“Support of this program and recognition of pharmacists is a great thing because you’re supporting and celebrating the individuals who are quickly becoming the first and last line of healthcare.”  
— Misty C. Farr, 2017 Patient Care Provider Honoree

‘The opportunity to attend the Next-Generation Pharmacist Awards gala and be in company with some of the leaders in the field of pharmacy was truly a special one. These awards showed the great work that our industry’s, top innovators, patient care champions, and advocators have done to advance the profession and keep patients at the center of everything they do. Witnessing these leaders and all they do first-hand was truly inspiring and something that I will carry with me through the rest of my career.”
— Drake J. Reiter, 2019 Future Pharmacist Winner
