Former President of the Pharmacy Guild’s South Australian Branch, Adelaide pharmacist Ian Todd, has been awarded the Barry Schultz medal for 2014.
The medal is awarded to a pharmacist deemed to have demonstrated the qualities that made the late Barry Schultz such a distinguished pharmacist and community member.
“Ian Todd has been involved at the highest level of support and advocacy on behalf of community pharmacy for more than a decade,” says acting National President of the Guild, Tim Logan.
“He is a deserved winner of this award, reflecting his commitment and contribution to our industry.”
As a National Council member, Ian Todd has been a vital contributor to the work of the Health Economics and Pharmacy Viability committees, particularly in relation to the Community Pharmacy Agreements.
The medal was awarded to Ian at a ceremony in Adelaide, attended by representatives of the Schultz family.
In August this year, Ian stepped aside after 12 years as Branch President. He remains on the Branch Committee and is the State’s second National Councillor.
