Nominate your pharmacist!
The Alzheimer's Association and Eisai Inc. call on people with Alzheimer's disease and caregivers across America to nominate local pharmacists for the 2011 C.A.R.E. (Commitment to Alzheimer's. Recognition of Excellence.) Pharmacy Award. The award recognizes the vital role that pharmacists play in helping as many as 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and their nearly 15 million caregivers.
How to nominate a pharmacist
People with Alzheimer’s and caregivers can nominate pharmacists through July 31, 2011. To be eligible, nominees must be licensed pharmacists involved in activities within the last year that have helped people with Alzheimer’s disease, and these activities must have had a positive effect on individuals and/or their families. A full description of the award and nomination criteria, as well as past winners, can be found at www.carepharmacyaward.com. The winner will be announced in August 2011.
Make a difference in the community where you live
If the pharmacist you nominate wins the award, the Alzheimer’s Association chapter serving your area will receive a donation. Another donation will go to a chapter in the area that receives the most nominations. These donations will help support resources we provide to people with dementia and their caregivers living in your community.
The winning pharmacist will be selected from the nominee pool by a panel of three judges. One judge is a director at the Alzheimer’s Association’s national office. The other two judges are past winners of this award.
