SMP Pharmacy Solutions' Founder & CEO Honored With FPA Bowl of Hygeia Award for Community Commitment

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Jul 19, 2016) -  SMP is proud to announce that The Florida Pharmacy Association (FPA) has selected Dr. Armando Bardisa as the recipient of its highest award, the 2016 Bowl of Hygeia Award for outstanding community service.

Dr. Bardisa complements his business success with various philanthropic partnerships including the support of Susan G. Komen foundation and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where he participates in the annual triathlon, raising over $50,000 in donations to date. SMP has also provided medicine and medical supplies for various medical missions in Guatemala, Haiti and Honduras. Locally, Armando supports the annual Migrant Toy Drive in Homestead and Blossom's Developmental Therapy Associates (BDTA), a state-of-the-art facility that provides service and programs for children with special needs, specifically cerebral palsy. This year Armando will participate in the New York City Marathon, running to raise money for Team for Kids, an organization that provides low-cost health and fitness programs to kids who have little access to regular physical activity.

"I am honored to have been chosen for this outstanding award among so many other influential leaders in the industry," said Dr. Armando Bardisa, President & Founder of SMP Pharmacy Solutions. "By achieving this recognition, our customers can be assured that we are an integral part of their community and committed to improving the lives of everyone in it."

He is also on the Board of Directors for the Pharmacy Development Services (PDS), an organization that coaches and trains independent pharmacy owners with the skills they need to be successful.

Established in 1958, the Bowl of Hygeia Award recognizes pharmacists who possess outstanding records of civic leadership in their communities and encourages pharmacists to take active roles in the affairs of their respective communities. In addition to service through their local, state and national pharmacy associations, award recipients have devoted their time, talent and resources to a wide variety of causes and community service. The Bowl of Hygeia is the most widely recognized international symbol for the pharmacy profession and is considered one of the profession's most prestigious awards.
