Teagan Crawford from Lauderdale Pharmacy has been chosen to represent Tasmania at the National Finals of the 2016 Pharmacy Guild of Australia/GuildSuper Pharmacy Assistant of the Year Award.
Pharmacy Guild of Australia training manager and national PATY judge Deborah Scholz says this year the award is celebrating its 10th anniversary, and received more than 580 nominations.
Crawford was chosen from 12 other state finalists at a state workshop where each participant had the chance to demonstrate their pharmacy knowledge and showcase their skills in customer service and leadership.
Scholz says that Crawford “just shone”.
Crawford says she is delighted to have been selected as the Tasmanian winner.
“I’m starting to feel very excited, and it was really great to meet other likeminded people who are so passionate about pharmacy, at the workshop,” she says.
Crawford will represent Tasmania at the National Finals to be held at the Pharmacy Assistant National Conference on 28 October at the Gold Coast. The national winner will take home over $10,000 in cash, prizes and rewards.
