Pharmacy Week Fun Facts

Continuing to Celebrate National Pharmacy Week – FSHP would like to share a few “Fun Facts” for your reference:

1942: After years of work by many individuals committed to the idea that hospital pharmacy needed separate and distinct representation, the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists was formed with a charter membership of 154 at the APhA Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado.

1995: ASHP changed its name to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The new name reflects changes occurring in the hospital industry, including consolidation of facilities and diversification beyond inpatient care into ambulatory care and home care. ASHP’s core membership still consists of pharmacists who practice in the hospital setting.

 

Pharmacists are not only behind the scenes hero’s saving lives and mitigating risk.

Here are a few fun facts about “Famous Pharmacists” and their significant contributions to various industries: http://www.pharmacytimes.com/contributor/beth-lofgren-pharmd-bcps/2015/12/8-interesting-pharmacy-facts
