CAMP HILL, Pa. — In recognition of American Pharmacists Month during October, Rite Aid Corp. has kicked off its 13th annual Vote for Your Favorite Pharmacy Team Member contest.
The drug chain said Monday that through Oct. 31, customers can vote for their favorite pharmacy team member by completing a mail-in nomination form a Rite Aid pharmacy or online at RiteAid.com/vote.
Customers who vote will automatically be entered into a random drawing to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards. One nominated pharmacy team member also will win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards through a random drawing.
Rite Aid will recognize all nominated pharmacy staff with a “Favorite Pharmacy Team Member” lapel pin and a letter of commendation from John Standley, Rite Aid’s chairman and chief executive officer, and Jocelyn Konrad, executive vice president of pharmacy at Rite Aid.
The contest is designed to honor Rite Aid pharmacy associates — including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy managers, pharmacy cashiers and Wellness Ambassadors — for their efforts to meet the health and wellness needs of customers.
“American Pharmacists Month is a great time to acknowledge the dedication of our pharmacy teams as they continue to help our customers and their families lead healthy lives every day,” Tammy Royer, senior vice president of pharmacy operations for Rite Aid, said in a statement. “Our pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, Wellness Ambassadors and pharmacy cashiers are committed and dedicated to making a difference year-round in the lives of those in the communities we serve by providing unique services such as medication consultations or helping patients find solutions to improve medication adherence.”
