CPhT Strong

Stories from the Front Lines

#CPhTStrong honors the nation’s pharmacy technicians who show heroic strength, courage, and hope as they face unprecedented demands in the battle against COVID-19. Many technicians take on increased responsibilities and long hours to support vulnerable patients, address medication shortages, prepare essential medications, restock supplies, and console the ill, all while risking their own health. 

What’s happening in your pharmacy and how are you managing? Submit your own COVID-19 story, with a photo or video, and PTCB will feature selected stories. Share your story.
