Editor’s note: This article is part of a series where we thank the Unexpected Heroes who put themselves at risk to keep Utah running during the coronavirus pandemic. Every Monday, we'll highlight a different industry and ask you to write in to thank the workers in that industry for their service. During the week, we'll profile someone who works in that industry. Every Friday, we'll publish some of your submissions and send the messages of thanks to those in the field.

SALT LAKE CITY — In a time when many people are thinking about their health more than ever amid the coronavirus pandemic, one group of essential employees is used to fielding questions about health and wellness.

The friendly people in the white coats who make sure the right people get the right medication, help sick people find medicine or other means of relieving symptoms, and help us sort out the helpful from harmful health advice. They are the pharmacy technicians and pharmacists: this week's Unexpected Heroes.

Pharmacists consult with people about their medications or help them find an over-the counter option to alleviate their symptoms. The pharmacy techs talk with customers, help fill prescriptions and manage inventory.

We'd like to thank these workers and need your help to do so.

For more than a month, hundreds of you have reached out every week to thank Utah's Unexpected Heroes in health care, grocery stores, the trucking industry, education, the postal service, law enforcement and sanitation. We're sure Utah's pharmacy workers also want to hear from you.
