Happy National Pharmacist Day

Happy National Pharmacist Day! Although the official day of celebration was on January 12th, the team at PK Health Gear wants to keep the celebration going. Pharmacists are another branch of the healthcare industry that are there for the community 24/7 along with doctors, nurses, EMTs, and physicians. Pharmacists are society’s go-to when a doctor is unavailable and medical advice is needed for an over-the-counter medicine recommendation. They are there to answer any questions you might have about your prescriptions and give helpful advice when you’re feeling under the weather. 
According to Statista, the number of pharmacists in the profession has increased immensely in the past decade. In 2016. There was over 300,000 pharmacists employed in just the United States alone. The history of pharmaceuticals goes back years to ancient times, although it did not become its own profession until years later. The first college of pharmacy was founded in the United States in 1821. According to the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, there are now 143 schools in the United States with a pharmacy accreditation. In order to become a pharmacist, it requires an extensive program with various qualifications that need to be met. 
This National Pharmacist Day, celebrate the pharmacists in your field with a special thank you and a personalized gift from PK Health Gear. Pharmacists work long hours which often include weekends and holidays, so gifting custom Patagonia or YETI products show appreciation for those in the dedicated profession.
