TerryWhite Chemmart (TWC) Goondiwindi Pharmacist Emma Conway has been awarded the TWC Pharmacist of the Year for 2021.
The award was announced on 19 June 2021, during a live cross from the virtual stage of TWC’s Masterclass event.
Pharmacy pioneers, Terry and Rhonda White announced Ms Conway’s win, acknowledging her ongoing commitment to serving the health needs of her Goondiwindi community.
“Rhona and I are truly honoured to be awarding Emma with the Pharmacist of the Year for 2021,” says Mr White.
“Emma is a recognisable force in her Gundy community – always putting the needs of her customer and community first, which was very much on display during the peak of Covid when she provided regular and vital information through their pharmacy social channels.”
Describing Ms Conway as a pillar of her community, TWC CEO Duncan Phillips adds that she is a driving force when it comes to raising awareness for health conditions with her patients.
“One of Emma’s most successful campaigns was her event with TradeMutt, which helped promote discussion around mental health and more recently, Emma bravely shaved her head raising $18,000 for cancer research as part of the World’s Greatest Shave,” says Mr Phillips.
“There is nothing Emma wouldn’t do to support her community and I am incredibly thrilled she is our 2021 Pharmacist of the year.”
Accepting the award alongside her mentor and TWC Goondiwindi Pharmacy Owner, Lucy Walker, Ms Conway says it is an incredible honour and privilege to win the award: “Thank you to TerryWhite Chemmart and my peers for the acknowledgement.”
As the winner for the TWC Pharmacist of the Year Award, Ms Conway receives funding towards furthering her education to ensure she can continue the great work she is doing in her community.
