Pharmacy Technician Appreciation Week
All hail our amazing Pharmacy Technicians! Pharmacy Week, which is celebrated annually during the third week of October, is a nationally recognized event. Pharmacy Week allows us to celebrate the valued members of our Pharmacy team, who do so much for our community.
CBD College celebrated our very own Pharmacy Technician students with a weeklong celebration which included custom made T-shirts, a raffle, appreciation gifts, and fun games like MedTerm charades. The Pharmacy Technicians were spotted taking a classroom selfie or two so they’d always remember what a great time they had that week.
But it wasn’t all fun and games. Current CBD Pharmacy Technician students, faculty, and staff also took the time to give back to the community. They raised awareness for their field by providing everyone with an open invitation to visit their classrooms and lab to see just how exciting the Pharmacy Technician field can be. Of these visitors, four have actually now become CBD College students!
In addition to all of the fun, our amazing faculty ventured into the community to thank recent employers with baskets full of delicious treats! Ms. Joy Hernandez, Director of the Pharmacy Technician program uses the following quote to reiterate the importance of perseverance, strength and passion, qualities that she instill in her students every day,
“Don’t be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams.” –anonymous.
Pharmacy Week came to a close with a family potluck. Students, staff, and their families were all invited to come together to share this meal, which proved to be the perfect way to bring an exciting and productive week to a close.
