The 2012 recipient is Anthony Tommasello, BSPharm, PhD, FAPHA, who was chosen in recognition of his work in the area of substance abuse education. Throughout his career, Tommasello has conducted research and provided education to a wide range of patient populations at risk for substance abuse.

This award is part of a competition among the 128 APhA Academy of Student Pharmacist Chapters. The 2012 national awards were presented to the top three chapters, in addition to eight regional awards. The top three chapters in this year's competition are: The University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy, East Tennessee State University Bill Gatton College of Pharmacy, and the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
