Pharmacist wins Defence Forces award

A Queensland pharmacist has been recognised for his support of an employee intern pharmacist and army reservist who was deployed overseas, receiving the National Small Business Winner award from the Australian Defence Forces.

Pharmacist Steve Flavel from Woody Point Pharmacy in Queensland continued to support his employee Luke Wale upon deployment to the Solomon Islands with Operation Anode, granting military service leave and then personally visiting Mr Wale abroad to see first-hand how his training was going to benefit his career.
