Pharmacy Award acknowledges a pharmacist who has been nominated by a person with Alzheimer's disease or a caregiver for his or her exceptional impact on the lives of those fighting this disease. The award was established to recognize the critical role that pharmacists play in supporting people with Alzheimer's disease and their families.

The C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award is a reflection of the Eisai human health care (hhc) mission, which regards patients and their families as the most important participants in the health care process. Eisai is proud to be in its eighth year of recognizing a pharmacist for this accomplishment and is excited to have been joined by the Alzheimer's Association for the 2008 award.

The recipient of the 2008 C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award is Tracey Pierce, RPh, CGP, FASCP.
