One of Dominica’s leading Pharmacies Jolly’s Pharmacy was recently honored at the Caribbean Pharmacy Association (CAP) conference held in Guyana.

The Caribbean Pharmacist Sigma Business Award recognizes deserving pharmacies throughout the region that epitomizes the best of the pharmacy business culture, and provides the setting, service and support for community.
Public Relations Officer, (PRO) of Jolly’s Pharmacy Carlton Lanquedoc told Dominica News Online (DNO) on Friday that the company is extremely happy to receive such award because “it signifies our work within the Dominican populace.”
“Even more so we recognize that the region is also looking at the works that we have been doing,” he stated.
According to him for the past four years the company has concentrated, “health education and promotion and lifestyle changes and this is one of the criterion that was used in determining the award.”
“So it wasn’t based on just about business in terms of monetary transactions but it was based on the philanthropic side and at the same time in terms of what type of information are we disseminating to our populace,” he explained.
He said the company is also happy to share the honor with Dominica and with its customers.
Lanquedoc stated that a pharmacy in Trinidad and Tobago received the first place position in the awards.
The 35th annual convention of CAP was held in collaboration with the Guyana Pharmacists Association (GPA).
