The Bowl of Hygeia Award recognizes pharmacists who possess outstanding records of civic leadership in their communities. Reher has been serving as a civic leader for Samaritan since 1992. She earned her pharmacy degree from Oregon State University and was named an Alumni Fellow in 2015.
“[Reher] has given so much of herself to the community and to the profession of pharmacy in Oregon,” said Kevin Russell, outpatient pharmacy operations manager. “Over the last 8 years Penny has served the public as a member and president of the Oregon Board of Pharmacy.”
Reher was honored with a plaque on October 12 during the Oregon State Pharmacists Association’s annual meeting and will receive the official award from the American Pharmacists Association on March 23, 2019 during the national annual meeting.
