The Pharmaceutical Society of Australia (PSA) announced Anna as the 2021 NSW Pharmacist of the Year on Saturday evening.
“New England pharmacist, Anna Barwick, received the NSW Pharmacist of the Year award. Ms Felkai (NSW PSA President) said Anna has led work in the area of telehealth and improving communications between pharmacists and the general community.
Anna’s pioneering work in this field has led to the formation of PharmOnline, a 24/7 telehealth advisory service which provides opportunities for the community to access health and medicines advice. Anna has also served as a member of PSA’s NSW Branch committee,” Felkai said.
Her work and advocacy in this field has certainly improved opportunities for rural communities to access advice and treatment opportunities where they have traditionally proved very difficult.”
