COVID-19 Heroes Campaign


The APhA Foundation COVID-19 Heroes Campaign honors pharmacists, pharmacy team members, and loved ones who have and are making significant contributions to the public health of our communities during our nation’s greatest health crisis - the COVID-19 global pandemic.

The campaign will memorialize the contributions of all pharmacists and pharmacy team members, as vital members of the healthcare team, and recognize the contributions of all impacted by COVID-19.

We offer this special opportunity to recognize pharmacists, pharmacy team members and loved ones at APhA headquarters in our nation’s Capital – the home of American pharmacy.

inscribed paver

On the magnificent grounds facing the Lincoln Memorial along the National Mall, you can select a paver and inscription of your choosing to be engraved upon a 8" by 8" stone paver within APhA’s Eastern Lower Terrace. In addition to individuals, organizations or companies are welcome to select a larger 32" by 16" stone paver that lines the outer edge of the Eastern Lower Terrace to have the name of your pharmacy or organization inscribed in a larger format. Recognition through an inscribed paver as part of this campaign will enshrine an individual or organization’s service to patients and demonstrate your appreciation for their role in supporting our nation and pharmacy profession through these challenging times.

  • $1 - $499, will provide direct support for the campaign and you will be acknowledged as a donor to the Foundation in the annual report.
  • $500 - $999, will enshrine your name as a supporter of the campaign on a bronze supporter plaque to be installed inside the APhA Headquarters building.

Submit your photos to the COVID-19 Heroes Campaign photo mosaic. The COVID-19 pandemic and the pharmacy heroes who served the patients and communities it affected have left an indelible mark on the profession and public health at large. The APhA Foundation wants to collect and preserve these images forever. Send us photos that visually capture pharmacy teams’ incredible contributions to COVID-19 response efforts—the people and the places where it all happened.

honoring supporters and Heroes 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic that began in 2020, pharmacists and pharmacy team members worldwide played essential roles in addressing health care needs of individuals and communities, many times at their own risk. These heroes, along with other members of our communities, banded together to battle this devastating global crisis. We recognize and honor individuals, organizations, family, friends, and colleagues for their contributions, dedication, and sacrifices during the COVID-19 pandemic.
