Senator Jeff Stone (R-Riverside County) was the recipient of the United States Public Health Service (USPHS) Public Health Excellence Award at the 2017 American Pharmacist Association (APhA) Annual Meeting and Exposition held this past weekend in San Francisco.

The award was presented by Rear Admiral (RADM) Pamela Schweitzer, Pharm D. BCACP, Assistant Surgeon General and Chief Professional Officer for Pharmacy, USPHS, and APhA CEO Thomas Menighan.

About 200 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, USPHS, Indian Health Service, the VA and other agencies attended.

In November 2014, Senator Stone was the first pharmacist to be elected to the California State Legislature in more than three decades.
