Celebrate 2016 National Pharmacy Technician Day on October 18
Message To Pharmacy Technicians From PTCB Executive Director and CEO Everett B. McAllister, MPA, RPh
Tuesday, October 18, is National Pharmacy Technician Day! As a pharmacy technician, you perform important work and carry out vital roles and responsibilities in your pharmacy every day. National Pharmacy Technician Day is a special time to acknowledge your role on the pharmacy team and express appreciation for your contributions. PTCB's recent public perception survey shows that consumers are focused on safety for their families, and expect technicians who help prepare their medications to have the right credentials. By keeping your PTCB Certification current, you are helping meet public expectations
for a competent workforce. Thank you for your commitment to patient care.
As a part of our celebration of the day, PTCB recently announced the 2016 PTCB CPhT of the Year, Diane Halvorson, RTech, CPhT. Ms. Halvorson is a leader in the pharmacy community, a model advocate for patient safety, and a clear and inspiring voice for technicians. Congratulations Ms. Halvorson
