VPhA Award of Merit

The profession of pharmacy in Virginia has, over the years, received much help and assistance from individuals outside the profession. It is appropriate to publicly recognize and thank those individuals who have been especially helpful in assisting pharmacy to meet its obligations and responsibilities to the public health. Therefore, the Virginia Pharmacists Association established the "Award of Merit” to be presented to those non-pharmacists who helped us attain our goals and mission.
