Message from PTCB Executive Director and CEO Everett B. McAllister, MPA, RPh



October 22, 2013

Congratulations and Thank You!

Dear CPhT,

Today is National Pharmacy Technician Day, and PTCB would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your accomplishments! As a PTCB CPhT, you are in good company. More than 500,000 certifications have been awarded by PTCB since we were founded in 1995. This growing number means more qualified CPhTs like you are supporting pharmacists across all practice settings in the delivery of safe and effective patient care.

As a way to celebrate National Pharmacy Technician Day, PTCB is very pleased to announce the PTCB CPhT of the Year and two top finalists. These three CPhTs, MSgt. Jessica Hughes, USAF, Rico Powell, and Linda Henson, are among the best in the PTCB pharmacy technician community. PTCB launched the CPhT of the Year program in July as a way to promote achievement and encourage innovation among all pharmacy technicians. Your enthusiastic response yielded more than 550 nominations and provided so many examples of innovation, talent, and accomplishment among PTCB CPhTs.

PTCB continually strives to keep our certification program current and relevant, so it accurately reflects the skills you need in today's pharmacy practice settings. As the nation’s healthcare system evolves, pharmacy technicians are increasingly being called upon to support pharmacists in providing new healthcare services. PTCB is sharply focused on ensuring that PTCB’s certification program prepares CPhTs for the integral roles you must play in supporting pharmacists.

PTCB applauds and thanks you for your dedication and commitment to patient care and safety. As a PTCB CPhT, you are better prepared to meet today’s pharmacy needs and tomorrow’s challenges. Again, congratulations to you and your fellow pharmacy technicians. Take a moment to reflect on your own achievement, and enjoy the day on October 22. HappyNational Pharmacy Technician Day!

Sincerely,

Everett B. McAllister, MPA, RPh
Executive Director and CEO
