The Professional Compounding Centers of America honored the work of Cheri Garvin with the presentation of the 2016 Evelyn Timmons Advocacy Award.
Garvin, president and CEO of The Compounding Center in Leesburg, has been a practicing pharmacist for more than 20 years.
The award was created to pay tribute to Evelyn Timmons, a nationally acclaimed pioneer in the use of bioidentical hormones for women and the first female president of the American College of Apothecaries. The honor is bestowed upon a female advocate who is actively and passionately advancing the compounding arena.
Garvin was presented with the award at PCCA’s members-only reception during IACP’s Compounders on Capitol Hill event last week and also will be recognized at PCCA’s International Seminar this November in Houston.
“I can’t think of anyone who deserves this award more than Cheri,” stated Jay Gill, co-owner/director of business development of The Compounding Center. “She is a passionate, dedicated, tireless and generous advocate of compounding, and I’m thrilled that her experience, commitment and established reputation have been recognized in such a meaningful and prominent way.”
