41 – Tuesday Pharm Tech Day: Rayna Elrod

We’re moving our #SAMemoryMonday to Tuesday this week in Honor of National Pharmacy Technician Day on October 16th.  This week I’d like to tell you about one of the best Pharmacy Technicians we’ve had at the Salem Apothecary at #3 Lyon Block, but first let me explain a bit more about what a Pharmacy Technician…

40 – What is a Pharmacist? What do you do?

I was really glad to be part of the Salem Middle School Career on Wheels program last Friday afternoon, where several different businesses set up in the lower parking area at Salem Middle School and were available for 6th, 7th and 8th graders to stop by and ask us about our jobs.  I was expecting…

39 – Flu-palooza: It’s Time for Flu Season Prep!

At the Salem Apothecary, we are always striving to be on the cutting edge of the newest developments in pharmacy and other aspects of healthcare.  In 2009, when Indiana passed a law that would allow a pharmacist to administer vaccines, I was part of the first group of pharmacists certified to do this.  There was…
