“Vote For Your Favorite Pharmacist” Contest Honors Rite Aid Pharmacists
To celebrate American Pharmacists Month in October, Rite Aid asked patients to vote for their Favorite Pharmacist by sharing stories of extraordinary service and telling what makes their pharmacist special. The program, now in its sixth year, was designed to honor Rite Aid’s pharmacists for their commitment to patient care.
“There’s no better time to honor our pharmacists than American Pharmacists Month,” said Robert Thompson, Rite Aid Executive Vice President, Pharmacy. “Rite Aid pharmacists are the medication experts on a patient’s health care team and are often the most accessible member of that team. Everyday our pharmacists are counseling, answering healthcare questions and providing outstanding care for their patients. Our Favorite Pharmacist program is just one way we thank them for their hard work and dedication to the health and wellbeing of their patients and communities.”
During the contest, patients vote for their favorite pharmacist online at www.riteaid.com/vote or at any Rite Aid store. Patients who vote will be entered into a random drawing where one lucky patient will win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards. One lucky pharmacist will also win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards. All “favorite” Rite Aid pharmacists will receive a Favorite Pharmacist pin and a letter of commendation from Rite Aid’s Chairman and CEO Mary Sammons in honor of their superior customer service.
