Pfizer Consumer Health Bowl of Hygeia

Pfizer Consumer Health Bowl of Hygeia

The Award

An appreciation of the time and personal sacrifice devoted by pharmacists to the welfare of their respective communities promoted E. Claiborne Robins, President of A.H. Robins and a third-generation pharmacist in his family, to establish in 1958 the “Bowl of Hygeia”.

This award is given for outstanding community service by a pharmacist. The award, a handsome mahogany plaque which features the “Bowl of Hygeia” cast in bronze, is presented annually at the Award Banquet to a recipient selected by each of the participating pharmaceutical associations.

Scott Davidson (2016 Bowl of Hygeia)

Scott Davidson received his first degree, a Bachelor of Arts and Science with a major in Labour Studies, at the University of Manitoba. In 1989, he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from the University of Saskatchewan and later moved back to Flin Flon to work with his father and pharmacist Murray Davidson in the Flin Flon Clinic. In 1994, Scott purchased the store from his dad and later ventured into a partnership with Pharmasave Drug Stores. This venture eventually grew into ten stores in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Throughout the years, Mr. Davidson’s philosophy has been to surround himself with excellent people, and to take care of the community in which one lives and works. He has shown his dedication to the Flin Flon community, through his unwavering financial support and by volunteering for the Flin Flon Junior Bombers over the years, and in implementing the Neighbours helping Neighbours program, which allows customers to donate 1% of their purchases over $5 to a local school of their choosing. Since October 2002, one of Mr. Davidson’s Pharmasave stores alone has donated approximately $100,000 to the surrounding schools. Owing to his strong commitment and dedication to his community through the years, Mr. Davidson is a worthy recipient of the 2016 Pfizer Consumer Healthcare Bowl of Hygeia Award.
