Title

Pharmacy and the Heart 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Pharmacy and the Heart" printed in 1956. These "ethical displays" were designed and written by Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist from Paterson, New Jersey. Published by his company Professional Advancement Plan, Pinchak sold the posters to pharmacists around the country. He donated the posters to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy in 2013. The main poster reads: "Pharmacy and the Heart. In 1785 - a tea...brewed by chance from the leaves of the garden foxglove - gave the world digitalis. Physicians have long acclaimed this early "wonder drug" for its beneficial action on the heart." Side poster #1 reads: "Your pharmacist stocks over 40 varieties of medicines prepared from digitalis leaves." Side poster #2 reads: "The prescription department is the heart of our pharmacy."
