To the Editor:
October 21 is National Pharmacy Technician Day and the Kansas Pharmacists Association would like to thank all of the pharmacy technicians in Manhattan and the surrounding area.
We also would like to remind everyone to thank them for all of their hard work and daily commitment to delivering and providing outstanding service to customers.
We embrace the mission of being pharmacy technicians; we provide expert care and innovative solutions in phar-macy and health care that are effective and easy for all of our customers.
The role of a pharmacy tech-nician is a critical one. Every day we tackle the many challenges we face with integrity, compassion and profession-alism.
On National Pharmacy Technician Day, please know that the Kansas Pharmacists Association and I salute fellow pharmacy technicians for their contributions in helping im-prove services to every customer, every day in all the ways we care for our customers and touch their lives.
Our customers view us as pharmacy staff, as we are a trusted part of their health care team. Our face-to-face inter-action with customers every day strengthens this trust and improves their health outcomes. The outstanding support we provide to our customers helps ensure their continued good health.
Again, the Kansas Pharmacists Association and I, as Kansas Pharmacy Technician Academy Chair and a certified pharmacy technician, thank you all for your commitment to our profession. We set a positive example each day caring for our patients, working in area communities and in communities all over the world.
We are a success because of you, the customer. I am a success because of you. Remember the enthusiasm and dedication of your pharmacy technicians today and be proud to thank them!
