National Pharmacist Day
Date When Celebrated: Always January 12
National Pharmacist Day is honors pharmacists, and recognizes their important role in medical care. A Pharmacist must be knowledgeable of the chemistry of all medicines. They can inform you of a drugs' side effects, and all aspects of prescription medicine. Very importantly, they understand and recognize the inter-action of drugs together...many people take numerous drugs.
National Pharmacist Day recognizes this important role. If you are in the pharmacy today, make sure to wish your pharmacist a good day. Gifts and cards are not required.

History and Origin of National Pharmacist Day:
You can be sure that National Pharmacists Day was created by a pharmacist group. However, we have yet to discover the group that started it. As we began our research on this day, we fully expected to find one or two national pharmacy groups. To our surprise, we found a couple national groups and many state groups. We did not find a group that claimed to have created this day.
Also, there is no evidence to suggest that this is truly a "National" day, which requires an act of congress.
