National Pharmacist Day:
We have been sick multiple times. Moreover, we rely on our doctors and chemists to tend to our illnesses. Today, on January 12, we celebrate National Pharmacist Day. They work day and night to provide us with the correct medicines in time of need. Furthermore, this day also gives gratitude to these tireless workers for taking care of us and our health. A campaign for the same reason launched two years ago.
Pharmacies originated in 754 A.D. They were primarily seen in Baghdad. Additionally, with a change in times, newer medicines propagated. This day is also celebrated in remembrance of these iconic medical histories. Moreover, in 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. This medicine is used to cure multiple diseases and illnesses. Fast forward to 1963, CVS, America’s biggest drugstore was established. It not only created a brand image for medicines. But also employed over 24,000 employees. They work tirelessly today to provide the best customer service for their consumers.
