Happy Pharmacist Appreciation Day! To all the pharmacists out there, a sincere thank you for everything you do for your patients. In order to help us celebrate the positive impact pharmacists have in their communities, one of our customers, Beverly Masiello, kindly agreed to share her story of becoming a pharmacist.

“I became a pharmacist because the most influential person in my life, my dad, suggested it to me as the perfect career choice for a woman inclined to continue her studies in the field of science. As a high school student, my dad worked in a local pharmacy and always looked up to the pharmacists he worked with. One of the pharmacists was a woman named Dotty who was raising two young children alone, as her husband had passed away young. My dad impressed upon me that her career path enabled Dotty to care for and support her children while helping others.”
