March is Pharmacist Awareness Month

Each March Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) celebrates the contributions that pharmacists make to our health care system and helps educate Canadians about the health care services and advice their pharmacists are now delivering. 

Pharmacists across Canada have had a widely expanded scope of practice over the past decade that has them doing more for their patients than ever before. We want to celebrate the great strides the profession has made, highlight the health care services now offered at the pharmacy, and encourage Canadians to Think Pharmacists this March.

Our PCN Pharmacist, Nandini Desai, provides a wide scope of patient care from diabetes education, medication reviews and tobacco cessation support. Ask your PCN family doctor for a referral to visit Nandini for support.
