Mayors in both Auburn and Mobile recently declared the month of October as American Pharmacists Month in their respective cities.

American Pharmacists Month is charged with recognizing the role pharmacists play in our health, our communities, and our lives. Pharmacists are celebrated throughout the month for their courage and for standing by their patients throughout the pandemic and beyond.

Mayor Ron Anders signed the proclamation in Auburn on Oct. 6, during a chapter meeting of the American Pharmacists Association – Academy of Student Pharmacists in the Harrison School of Pharmacy’s Walker Building.

Less than a week later, on Oct. 12, students from the Harrison School of Pharmacy’s Mobile campus attended a meeting of the Mobile City Council where Mayor Sandy Stimpson signed a proclamation and declared Pharmacists Month in the city of Mobile.
