Each year AIHP awards Certificates of Commendation to recognize individuals or organizations whose work or actions have contributed to or promoted the history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals. The Institute is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Certificates of Commendation. Nominations will be accepted through August 1, 2021. The nomination form is available on AIHP’s website.

AIHP awards Certificates of Commendation to recognize activities or historical endeavors by individuals or organizations that (i) advance knowledge or understanding of the history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals; or (ii) utilize the history of pharmacy and pharmaceuticals to entertain, inform, or educate or to address or advance understanding of contemporary issues.

Certificates of Commendation are not intended to recognize individuals for academic achievements or for peer-reviewed publications.

AIHP has awarded Certificates of Commendation to recognize a wide range of activities and projects. In 2020, for example, certificate recipients included:

  • The Pharmacy Artifact Sorting Team (PAST) at the Oregon State University College of Pharmacy for its work to curate a collection of over 5,000 pharmacy artifacts that the OSU College of Pharmacy recently acquired.
  • The Journal of Managed Care Pharmacy and the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy for publishing a series of articles published in the Journal during 2020 highlighting the history and evolution of managed care pharmacy during the past 25 years.
  • Antonio Ramos Carrillo, PhD, for his work to establish the Museum of the History of Pharmacy of Seville and to collect and curate the Museum’s impressive collection of artifacts, books and other materials documenting the history of pharmacy and medicines in Spain and elsewhere.

In 2019, AIHP member Alvin J. Schalow of Virginia received a Certificate of Commendation for his creation of “‘Doc’ Schalow’s Medicine Wagon Show;” which uses theatrics and humor to explain the evolution of safe and effective medicine, and for his role in creating a video series that traced the history and development of pharmacy and the pharmacy profession.

Further information about AIHP’s Certificates of Commendation is available on the Institute’s website.
