World Diabetes Day

Today is World Diabetes Day (WDD). This holiday was created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and became an official United Nations Day in 2006. The date was chosen as 14 November, because that is the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who co-discovered insulin in 1922 with Charles Best.

Happy #WomenPharmacistDay

Happy #WomenPharmacistDay to the strong females who use their PharmD education and Pharmacist training to work at Med Communications. Given the makeup of the company, it’s not hard to believe that women make up over half of the pharmacist workforce and over 60% of PharmD graduates.

Thank you to all the women pharmacists for your contributions to the profession.
