The annual event is endorsed by the American Association of Pharmacy Technicians (AAPT) and the Pharmacy Technician Educators Council (PTEC). National Pharmacy Technician Day coincides with National Hospital and Health-System Pharmacy Week, endorsed by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
