For many New Yorkers local pharmacists are the face of healthcare in their communities.
“You walk up to my counter, a pharmacist is here for you each and every day. That’s valuable that this city and this state cannot afford to lose,” said Roger Paganelli.
Paganelli’s family has been in the pharmacy business since 1923 when his grandfather opened his first pharmacy. Today Paganelli and his brothers run Mt. Carmel Pharmacy in the Bronx.
