Dr. Peppard is a busy man—he is a Trauma/Surgical Critical Care Pharmacist, Director of PGY2 Critical Care Residency at Froedtert Hospital, and Assistant Professor of Surgery at Medical College of Wisconsin. We sat down with Dr. Peppard to better understand, why pharmacy?
Did you know that a pharmacist started Memorial Day? Pharmacist Henry C. Welles had an idea to place flowers on the graves of those who fought in the Civil War in the summer of 1865, according to Tech Times. General John B. Murray helped the pharmacist organize the memorial, which took place the following year on May 5, 1866. The ceremony eventually became known as Memorial Day.
