Mayank Amin a Pharmacist / Chief Patient Advocate

Dr Mayank Amin - Covid19 Hero Awards

Dr. Mayank Amin, known as Dr. Mak, has become Montgomery County’s local superhero since reopening a long-standing community pharmacy which had its doors shuttered 3 years ago by a large chain. Driven by a goal to help his community, Dr. Mak has made national headlines most recently with his COVID-19 program vaccinating close to 50,000 community members since February 2021. The number of vaccines is a great feat; however, the way in which he inspired the masses to get involved is something even more special. Through a 100% volunteer task force of close to 1,000 volunteers, Dr. Mak lead the Skippack Pharmacy COVID task force into helping many local communities including seniors, special needs groups, underserved populations, homebound patients, and more all while his wife was pregnant and living away from him to protect their unborn child. Dr. Mak was recognized by the Governor (twitter.com/GovernorTomWolf), US Senator Klobuchar (twitter.com/amyklobuchar/), amongst many others, and at the Capitol building on the Senate/House Floor (senatorcollett.com).

Throughout the pandemic and even before, Dr. Mak lives by the motto, “In the Joy of Others, Lies Our Own” and continues to operate for his community mentioning the S on his Superman costume stands for servant.
