State Auditor Kathy McGuiness was honored as “Delaware’s Pharmacist of the Year” by the Delaware Pharmacist Society at their annual conference.
“It is an honor to be presented with the Pharmacist of the Year Award,” said McGuiness. “This past year has truly highlighted the role pharmacists play as a resource to a community’s health and I am proud to work alongside so many talented, caring individuals.”
McGuiness, has released three special reports that claim pharmacy benefit managers are overcharging Delaware taxpayers.
“As a pharmacist, I have seen firsthand the impact high drug prices have on families,” McGuiness said. “People are regularly forced to choose between putting food on the table and affording their life-saving medications.”
McGuiness was honored in October, the same month she was indicted on misdemeanor and felony charges related to her conduct in office.
