Chilliwack pharmacy owner recognized

Nazlin Khamis received the Outstanding Pharmacy Owner or Manager award at this year’s Commitment to Care & Service Awards,

Chilliwack pharmacist and Pharmasave owner Nazlin Khamis has turned a passion for holistic approaches to health into a recipe for success that’s getting national attention.

Khamis received the Outstanding Pharmacy Owner or Manager award at this year’s Commitment to Care & Service Awards, the national awards program hosted by Pharmacy Practice and Drugstore Canada, Canada’s leading pharmacy magazines. The Commitment to Care & Service Awards gala took place on the evening of November 26th, 2012, at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto.

Born in Kenya, Khamis received her pharmacy education in England and founded Chilliwack Pharmasave Health Centre in 1985.

This is the second award Khamis has won this year. In May, she was recognized with the Bowl of Hygeia award at the BC Pharmacy Association’s annual conference.

“Nazlin Khamis is a truly inspirational pharmacist,” says Parveen Mangat, pharmacy coordinator with the Pharmasave Pacific regional office. “My only wish is that we could somehow bottle up her enthusiasm for moving the profession forward and share it with the rest of the pharmacy community.”

The Commitment to Care & Service Awards honours community and hospital pharmacists, pharmacy owners, and managers, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy students for their innovative contributions to pharmacy practice. Awards are presented in 11 categories: Advanced Learning, Charitable Work; Green Leadership; Health Promotion; Integrated Pharmacy Program; Lifetime Service Award; Outstanding Pharmacy Owner or Manager; Pharmacy Innovation Award; Pharmacy Technician Initiatives; Rookie of the Year; and Student Leadership.
