The 25th of September is designated each year as World Pharmacists Day. This holiday is held in honour of all pharmacists who provide compassionate care to their patients.
Pharmacists are medical professionals who formulate, prepare, store, and administer pharmaceuticals. They are also referred to as chemists or druggists. Pharmacists offer guidance and counselling on the best ways to utilise medications to get the most benefit, experience the fewest adverse effects, and prevent drug interactions.
The purpose of World Pharmacists Day is to honour all pharmacists who give of themselves in their vocation. This holiday is held in honour of all the devoted pharmacists who work long hours and treat customers with love and candour.
