National Pharmacists Day

Jan. 12th National Pharmacists Day. “Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.” – Hippocrates

National Pharmacist Day is celebrated every year on Jan.12 to honor pharmacists, and acknowledge their efforts in building public health.

A pharmacist is responsible for providing quality medicines to patients and ensuring the medications prescribed to patients are suitable and within the law. They answer any queries the patients might have about the medicines, including how to take them. They are also responsible for warning the patients about the possible reactions that might occur.
