Warren Meek Pillar of Pharmacy award recipient 2024 - Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy

This year’s Pillar of Pharmacy winner has dedicated himself to the pharmacy profession, not only in Canada but around the world, says Linda Prytula, Executive Director of the Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy “We are so pleased to honour Warren Meek with this Award as a way of recognizing and thanking him for his service.”

Indeed, Meek’s pharmacy work has taken him from Canada to Africa, all in an effort to improve access to quality health care around the globe.

After graduating from Dalhousie University in 1977, he served local communities for almost 30 years as a pharmacist/owner with Shoppers Drug Mart. For the past 17 years, under the umbrella of his consulting company, C7 Consulting Limited, he has provided short-term locum pharmacist services and participated in a variety of health-related projects.

Many of these took him to Africa, where he offered his expertise on medical missions. After initially travelling to Tanzania with Canada Africa Community Health Alliance to provide free healthcare services to those without access to care, he has continued to travel with medical teams one to two times a year.
