Each year the Virginia Association of Free & Charitable Clinics presents the Champions of Health Care Awards to honor and recognize individuals and organizations that have made a real difference in Virginia’s health safety net. These awards are meant to recognize leaders in the community who make a true impact on the health and quality of life in Virginia. These remarkable individuals and entities have demonstrated significant contribution, support, and commitment to free clinics and are publicly recognized at VAFCC’s annual conference.
Eugene Triplett, the Pharmacist in Charge at the Free Clinic of Culpeper, is this year’s Pharmaceutical Champion. As noted in the VAFCC’s award announcement, “Eugene was also a member of the clinic’s board of directors from 2009 through 2017 – serving on the Clinical Services Committee. For the past ten years, despite an extremely demanding schedule operating his own independent pharmacy, small farm, and a recently completed term on the Culpeper Regional Hospital Board, Eugene has selflessly provided the clinic countless hours of support filling patient prescriptions, streamlining pharmacy operations, and upgrading clinic pharmacy software and technology. A loyal and valued clinical member, Eugene brings professionalism, competency, and passion to the successful functioning of the clinic and his dedication to the mission is clearly evident in the improved health of the patients served.”
Congratulations to Eugene on this well-deserved recognition!
