Randy Chiat, RPh., a 1990 graduate of the University of Maryland, School of Pharmacy, started his professional career at Revco in Fallston. In the fall of 1992 he started working at Hereford Pharmacy and he states, “the adventure continues.” The “family-like, small town feel” has kept him there.
He is a licensed immunizer, certified by the American Heart Association as a CPR provider, and has received certificates of educational achievement in diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol management. He declares there have been many changes during his career, but the most significant was the law that permitted pharmacists to administer vaccines. It allowed an even closer bond with patients which expressed the trust they had in their pharmacists.
