Tuesday, July 19, 2016

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Community Pharmacists Association has posted a second online video that illustrates the personal care that people receive at independent community pharmacies, the contributions of their pharmacists to better coordinating care, and the role of these pharmacies in supporting their local communities. The video features Theresa Tolle, RPh, owner of Bay Street Pharmacy, which serves the Sebastian, Fla., area with the motto “Where caring people care for you.” “Patients often say they choose to rely on independent community pharmacies because they are treated like family and that they want to support their local community and economy,” said NCPA CEO Douglas Hoey, RPh. “Theresa’s story and the care provided by her pharmacy perfectly illustrate that dynamic.” The NCPA’s first video featured Danny Cottrell, RPh, and the civic, philanthropic and economic contributions of independent community pharmacies. The association represents 22,000 independent community pharmacies.
