WVPA 108th Annual Convention Exhibitor/Sponsor Registration: here
BEAL AWARD OPEN FOR NOMINATIONS
The Beal Award is the highest honor given a member of the West Virginia Pharmacists Association. Given every other year, it is scheduled to be presented at the Annual Convention, October 17 and 18, 2015, at Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, WV.
The Award is in memory of Dr. James H. Beal, co-founder of our professional organization. He began his career in pharmacy in Ulrichsville, Ohio. He continued his studies at Ohio Medical College and the University of Pittsburgh, and earned his law degree from the University of Cincinnati.
Dr. Beal drafted the original state pharmacy practice act, as well as the narcotic and poison laws. He was directly responsible for inclusion of the USP and National Formulary as legal standards in the U. S. Food and Drug Act of 1906.
In recognition of his many services to the profession of pharmacy, Dr. Beal became the first recipient of the national Remington Medal. He came to West Virginia in 1906 and took it upon himself to direct the formation of our state organization.
At the organizational meeting in Parkersburg, Dr. Beal said, “West Virginia is truly a land of promise with her extensive forest, her rich beds of coal and other minerals, her flowing fountains of oil and other national resources.”
The recipient must be a licensed West Virginia pharmacist, residing in our State and a member of our Association for at least 10 years. The recipient must also be active in the profession of pharmacy.
In recognition of this Award, the recipient must demonstrate meritorious services in furthering the interests of the profession of pharmacy in our State.
WVPA members are invited to nominate a fellow-member for this prestigious Award. Contact WVPA 304-344-5302 or Email email@example.com for a nomination form.
