The JL Summers Achievement Award

This award is given in recognition of a significant contribution within the practice of hospital pharmacy which demonstrates innovation and leadership in the health care field. It was established in 1987 in honour of Dr. Jack Leslie Summers.

About JL Summers

Jack Summers received his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy from the University of Saskatchewan in 1949 and he immediately became a full-time instructor at the College. He received a Masters of Science in Hospital Pharmacy from the University of Iowa in 1952. In 1954, Jack became the first Director of Pharmaceutical Services at the new University Hospital in Saskatoon, a position he held until 1963.

Jack was appointed as Editor of the Canadian Journal of Hospital Pharmacy in 1961 and for the next twenty years, he produced 190 editorials that were "must reading" for even the busiest hospital pharmacist. His editorials established an international reputation for light heartedly identifying our deficiencies and pointing the direction for hospital pharmacy in the future.

In 1963, Jack was promoted to Full Professor in the College of Pharmacy and the University Hospital also promoted him to Assistant Director responsible for Medical Services. Three years later, Jack returned to full time academic life. He immediately decided research was needed in hospital pharmacy practice. From 1968 to 1971, he was the Research Director of a National Health Research and Development Grant "Development of Computer-Assisted Unit Dose Drug Distribution Systems" which laid the groundwork for modern day drug distribution systems throughout North America.

In 1975, the Government of the province implemented the Saskatchewan Prescription Drug Plan and Jack Summers was appointed the first Executive Director on a part-time basis to implement the program. No one but Jack could have accomplished the smooth development of that controversial drug plan in such a short period of time.

Jack's contributions to professional pharmacy organizations are unique. He is the only person ever to serve as President of the three primary Canadian pharmacy organizations - the Canadian Pharmaceutical (Pharmacists) Association, the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists and the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada. He was an Honorary Member of all those associations as well as the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists.

Jack served with the Canadian Armored Division during the Second World War and was awarded a Military Cross. He subsequently rose to the rank of Brigadier General and Commander of the Prairie Militia Area.

In spite of all these accomplishments, Jack's first love was to teach of students how to be leaders in pharmacy. He was famous for his "It all depends" approach which truly typifies professional responsibility.

Jack Summers passed away on January 26, 1994.
