The Pharmacist Knew Best, Herald News Article about Frank Pinchak Posters

Description

Newspaper article from the Herald News (Passaic County, New Jersey) from Sunday, December 14, 2008. The article describes the work of Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist practicing in Paterson, NJ, who founded the Professional Advancement Plan. This program produced "ethical" poster displays on health education topics that didn't promote manufacturer products. Retail pharmacists around the country could obtain these poster sets for their pharmacy windows. By subscribing to Pinchak's program, pharmacies would receive a new poster set every two months. The article mentions some of the major topics covered, such as polio, promising new drugs, like tranquilizers, water fluoridation, expanding life expectancy, and fears of a nuclear attack. The article also promotes the Paterson Museum exhibit on Frank Pinchak titled "The Well-Being Notice: 40 Vintage Pharmacy Window Displays," which ran through January 2009.
