CVS Caremark pharmacists are dedicated to improving the lives of their patients. American Pharmacists Month is an important reminder of the pharmacist's role in patient care by providing counseling for patients and their families in all aspects of pharmacy health care including the importance of medication adherence, the use of generics and medication management.

"CVS Caremark pharmacists are trusted health care advisors who provide expert care and innovative solutions in pharmacy health care that are effective and easy for their patients," said Tom Ryan, Chairman, President and CEO of CVS Caremark. "From counseling a patient in crisis, to celebrating a return to good health, or recommending an over-the-counter remedy, our pharmacists make a difference in the lives of our customers. We are tremendously proud of their enthusiasm and dedication."

CVS Caremark will also celebrate National Pharmacy Technicians Day on Tuesday, October 27 in recognition of the valuable role its 50,000 pharmacy technicians play in supporting CVS Caremark pharmacists and serving our customers.

CVS Caremark, the number one provider of prescriptions in the nation, will publicly recognize American Pharmacists Month and National Pharmacy Technicians Day during the month of October with ads in CVS/pharmacy circulars and on its in-store radio network, as well as messaging on its CareCheck Plus prescription information materials. The Company will also recognize individual pharmacists and technicians throughout the organization who have received outstanding customer feedback and performed outstanding counseling service to patients.
