March 14, 2020: During an impromptu ceremony, Rob Carpenter, Jr. RPh was awarded the Bowl of Hygeia by the VPA. This national award was established in 1958. The Bowl of Hygeia Award recognizes pharmacists who possess outstanding records of civic leadership in their communities and encourages pharmacists to take active roles in their communities. The award is presented annually by participating state pharmacy associations, including those in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In addition to service through their local, state, and national pharmacy associations, award recipients devote their time, talent, and resources to a wide variety of causes and community service."
Rob's father, Rob Carpenter Sr., and his uncle Lucian Wiskoski also won the Bowl of Hygeia, an amazing trifecta for this family of Rutland, VT pharmacists.
Rob Carpenter holds his 2020 Bowl of Hygeia Award. His sister holds their father's Bowl of Hygeia, awarded in 1980.
