St. Vincent Healthcare is recognizing all pharmacy workers for National Pharmacy Week.

St. V's is celebrating by having various events every day this week, including a chili cook-off. Pharmacists say the profession has changed through the years for the better.

"So that last year of professional school is the real target of that is the clinical activities that the students do," said Todd Koepp, St. Vincent's pharmacy operations manager. "And so our profession has grown such that we have a much better clinical focus on the patients in the long run and that has been a great advancement for pharmacy itself."

The hospital's pharmacy department also has opportunities for high school students to shadow in the department and hospital.
