Title

Frank Pinchack Poster Display for Paterson Public Health Week in 1955

Description

Photograph appeared in Drug Topics magazine in 1955. The caption read: "Visitor to health exhibit during Paterson Public Health Week gets information on Salk vaccine from Samuel Scillieri (left), new President, Passaic County (N.J.) Pharmaceutical Assn. In background, Frank Pinchak, past president, explains a display dealing with new drugs. Displays were designed by Mr. Pinchak." The poster sets on display in the image include "Immunity," "The Miracle of Cortisone," "Opium," "Pharmacy News," "Camphor," and "Insulin." Pinchak, a pharmacist practicing in Paterson, NJ, 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.
