Pharmacists and Pharmacy students around World celebrated World Pharmacists Day. World Pharmacists Day highlights the role of pharmacists in Public Health and the positive benefits they offer when it comes to health.

Each year welcomes a new theme, the theme of this year is, ‘Pharmacists: Caring for you’. This year’s theme was chosen to reflect the important role of pharmacists in providing care to the public, and also to highlight the emotional connection they have with their patients.

This year Doctor of Pharmacy Association organized sickle detection camp in the city. Besides the sickle cell detection camp, DPA is organized several awareness programs on the occasion of world pharmacist day on September 25 to showcase the good work pharmacists do in helping to improve the health of people.

“Doctor of Pharmacy Association is reaching out to other health care providers and policy makers to bring awareness about the health and economic benefits of recognizing pharmacists as health care providers and facilitating access to pharmacists’ patient care services. Currently pharmacists are an underutilized resource in our healthcare system. Recognizing pharmacists as healthcare provider will help change the face of pharmacists.

Patients would get the best care they need from the most appropriate providers, allowing physicians to see more patients, and doing what only physicians can do—which is diagnose. We believe that pharmacists are uniquely positioned to help meet the top goals: providing convenient, expanded access to medical care and controlling costs”.
