Join pharmacists, student pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians in face-to-face grassroots advocacy, and help fill our state capitol with white coats! KY Pharmacy Day, sponsored by KPhA, is an opportunity for your voice to be heard. A unified pharmacy front--across all practice settings--serves as a reminder to our state-elected officials that pharmacists put patients first, and they should, too. Let's kickstart our 2023 public policy efforts into high gear and keep pharmacy relevant. Registration closes on February 14.

We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
