WOODCLIFF LAKE, NJ, November 8, 2011 - Eisai Inc. and the Alzheimer's Association announce today that Max C. Brown, RPh is the recipient of the 2011 C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award.
Mr. Brown has been the owner of Max Brown Pharmacy in Dublin, GA since its opening in October 1973. The ballot supporting his nomination describes him as a "generous and caring pharmacist," one that is held in “high regard” within the community. He is well recognized for his "knowledge of the effects of Alzheimer's medications and a variety of Alzheimer's patient symptoms." Mr. Brown received his degree from the University of Georgia.
The C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award recognizes the extraordinary impact that pharmacists can have on the lives of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their families. Now in its eleventh year, the award is a reflection of Eisai's human health care (hhc) mission, which is to give first thought to patients and their families, and to helping increase the benefits that health care provides.
"Alzheimer's disease can be devastating to patients as well as caregivers. We view pharmacists as valued partners in the delivery of quality health care, appropriate medication, counseling and support to these patients and their families," said Lonnel Coats, President & CEO of Eisai Inc. "In partnering with the Alzheimer's Association on the C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award, we proudly recognize the recipient for his extraordinary effort in enhancing the quality of care for people affected by this disease."
"We are pleased to congratulate this year's winner, Max Brown, for his dedication and understanding of the Alzheimer's community," said Cyndy Cordell, Director of Healthcare Professional Services at the Alzheimer's Association and a member of the C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award selection committee. "The Alzheimer's Association is honored to be a part of the C.A.R.E. Pharmacy Award since its inception in 2008 and we greatly appreciate the generous support provided by Eisai Inc. to make this award possible."
