The OPA Virtual Conference Award Ceremony held on June 5, 2021, celebrated award winners, nominees, and all pharmacy professionals. Each award winner was nominated and must meet stringent criteria that are reviewed by a committee that ranks their achievements. All the award winners are committed to the pharmacy profession, and the patients and communities they serve. Due to the cancellation of last year’s conference, two awards from 2020—the Student of Distinction Award and the Bowl of Hygeia were presented. Read more to learn about the award recipients.
