The Catholic Business Network of Baltimore (CBNB) has announced that Dr. Ellen H. Yankellow, President & CEO of Correct Rx Pharmacy Services, Inc., is the recipient of the 2017 CBNB Catholic Business Leadership Award.
Dr. Yankellow, regarded as one of the leading women pharmacists in the country and an expert in institutional and geriatric pharmacy, founded Correct Rx after a long career as a top executive in the pharmacy services industry. Correct Rx has grown to become a national leader in institutional pharmacy services, currently serving over 195 correctional facilities throughout the United States.

A member of the Catholic Community of St. Francis Xavier in Hunt Valley, she served as co-chair of the 2016 Archbishop’s Annual Appeal along with her husband, William Chapman.
Dr. Yankellow has also been recognized with numerous awards, among them the Bowl of Hygeia Award, considered one of the pharmaceutical profession’s most prestigious awards, the Alzheimer’s Association Exemplary Leadership Award, and the Children’s Guild’s 2015 Sadie Award.
