Vermont Pharmacists Association


Every day pharmacists do great things to assist patients, the healthcare system, and their community. Most of these efforts receive little or no attention despite the benefit they provide. There is opportunity to provide recognition for outstanding efforts. There are a variety of awards that are available.

If you know someone, nominate someone!

Distinguished Young Pharmacist: Recognizes a young pharmacist who has graduated within the last ten years. The chosen pharmacist must be both registered in Vermont and an active member of the Vermont Pharmacists Association as well as a participant in national pharmacy association, professional programs and/or community service. Awarded annually.

The Bowl of Hygeia: Recognizes pharmacists who possess outstanding records of civic leadership in their communities and professional leadership through local, state, and national pharmacy association. Awarded annually.

Excellence in Innovation Award: Recognizes a pharmacist who is involved in an innovative pharmacy practice setting resulting in improved patient care. Awarded Annually.

VPA Mortar & Pestle Award: Recognizes a pharmacist or a non-pharmacist who has worked to advance the profession or patient care within Vermont. Awarded periodically.
