National Pharmacy Technician Day 2021

TRG is proud to participate in celebrating Pharmacy Technicians today and this month as part of Pharmacy Month.

What is National Pharmacy Technician Day?

Each year the pharmacy community takes a day to especially celebrate the pharmacy technician. We encourage employers, educators, organizations and the public to find ways to appreciate the important work technicians do every day.

In 2015, Lindsey Ahrens submitted National Pharmacy Technician Day and the American Association of Pharmacy Technicians (AAPT) and the Pharmacy Technician Educators Council (PTEC) endorse the day. The observance coincides with National Hospital and Health-System Pharmacy Week, also endorsed by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Additionally, the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) has named October American Pharmacists Month.
