Pharmacy Technician Day was first endorsed by Pharmacy Technician Educators Association, American Association of Pharmacy Technicians, Inc. – AAPT and Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) in 2015. The third Tuesday of each year is now also proclaimed by CAPT as National Pharmacy Technician Day.

This year more than ever, Pharmacy Technicians among all other healthcare professionals deserve all the recognition for being in the frontlines in a pandemic. They continued to work for the and safety and well-being of their patients delivering quality healthcare services often adapting to the numerous changes during a crisis.
