About the Awards
Established through a collaboration between Parata Systems and Pharmacy Times, the Next-Generation Pharmacist program salutes pharmacy professionals who are defining the future of pharmacy. The national awards program recognizes and honors pharmacists, technicians, student pharmacists, and industry advocates.

Now in its eleventh year, the program is comprised of 10 categories. Entries will be evaluated by an independent panel of esteemed judges, and up to three finalists will be named in each category. In addition to 10 category winners, one winner will be named the 2020 Next-Generation Pharmacist — the program’s top honor.

The 2021 Awards Gala
This year, the Next-Generation Pharmacist awards ceremony will be held on Friday, October 8, 2021 in Charlotte, NC.  Each finalist is invited as a guest of the Founding Sponsors.
