SEATTLE - August 12, 2013 - At its annual Retail Business Conference in Seattle, Wash., Cardinal Health named Chris Geronsin, owner of Beverly Hills Pharmacy of St. Louis, Mo., as the recipient of its Ken Wurster Community Leadership Award.

The annual award, which honors a retail independent pharmacist who promotes the ideals of community pharmacy, was created in honor of Tampa, Fla., independent pharmacist Ken Wurster, who passed away in 2008. Wurster was highly regarded for his commitment to serving his customers, epitomizing the role of a pharmacist who took responsibility for the wellness of his community.

Independent pharmacists and Cardinal Health employees were encouraged to submit nominations for this award, and all nominees were judged on a variety of criteria, including:

  • Community leadership and involvement
  • Ability to inspire others
  • Willingness to go above and beyond the day-to-day operations of a retail independent pharmacy to make their community a better place to live

All nominations were evaluated by members of Cardinal Health's National Retail Advisory Board (NRAB) and a team of Cardinal Health employees. The five finalists were sent to an executive committee including Cardinal Health leadership and NRAB members who together selected Geronsin for his extraordinary community commitment.

Geronsin serves on the board of directors of the Missouri Pharmacy Association, Cardinal Health National Advisory Board and as president of the Regional Cardinal Health Advisory Board. He also serves as an adjunct professor and guest lecturer for the St. Louis College of Pharmacy and has provided a wide array of volunteer and support services to the St. Louis Area Agency on Ageing and the St. Louis Chapter of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. In addition, Geronsin supports the St. Vincent's Home for Children, Helena Hatch Special Care Center, and A Network of Communities of the Poor (ANCOP), helping to build 40 homes for needy families in the Philippines.

In honor of Geronsin's commitment to community service, Cardinal Health will donate $10,000 to the St. Louis College of Pharmacy in honor of his daughter, Rachel Geronsin.

Additional finalists for the 2013 Ken Wurster Community Leadership Award include:

  • Beverly Schaefer - Katterman's Sand Point Pharmacy in Seattle, Wash.
  • Bhavana Patel - Hina's Mercy Southwest Pharmacy in Bakersfield, Calif.
  • Joel Rosenfeld - North Florida Pharmacy in Lake City, Fla.
  • Paula Wakeland - Hewitt - Davidson Drugs in Sarasota, Fla.
