Cast your ballots

The annual Pharmacy Practice Commitment to Care Awards are open for entries. And this year, for the first time, we’re offering early bird prizes for entries received before August 9, 1999.

Pharmacists across the country are encouraged to nominate themselves or others they feel have made a significant contribution to the profession. (If you nominate someone–other than yourself–who proves to be a winner, you’ll also get a prize of $200.)

in addition to awards for patient care, health promotion, charitable work, student leadership and hospital pharmacy, we’ve added a new category for service to the profession. The Commitment to Care award for Service to the Profession, sponsored by Pharmacia & Upjohn, will pay tribute to pharmacists who have helped to advance and/or promote the profession of pharmacy on a regional, provincial or national level.

Look for the Commitment to Care entry form in this issue of the magazine or contact Rosalind Stefanac, associate editor of Pharmacy Practice for details: telephone (416) 596-3496, fax (416) 596-3499; email: rstefanac
