                     HONORING DR. TAMMIE LEE DEMLER


                        HON. THOMAS M. REYNOLDS

                              of new york

                    in the house of representatives

                       Tuesday, December 7, 2004

  Mr. REYNOLDS. Mr. Speaker, it is with great pleasure that I rise to 
pay tribute to Dr. Tammie Lee Demler of Wheatfield, NY, for recently 
being honored as both a New York State Senate ``Woman of Distinction'' 
and the ``2004 Pharmacist of the Year.''
  Since receiving a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University at 
Buffalo School of Pharmacy, Dr. Demler has received a number of 
accolades. She became the President of the Pharmacists' Association of 
Western New York (PAWNY), and this year was named ``2004 Pharmacist of 
the Year'' by the association. Dr. Demler currently serves as the 
Director of the University's Psychiatric Pharmacy Post Doctoral 
Residency Program where she mentors graduate students. She has made 
numerous contributions to both the association and the pharmacology 
  Dr. Demler received another prestigious award from the New York State 
Senate this past June, being named a ``Woman of Distinction.'' The 
award was created to honor women throughout New York that have played 
an important role in ``adding strength, understanding, and inspiration 
to the diversity and quality of life'' in the state; I can think of no 
one more deserving of this award that Dr. Demler.
  Dr. Demler spends much of her free time working for the betterment of 
the community, such as helping organize the ``Taste of Buffalo,'' a 
very important annual event. Dr. Demler has made a considerable and 
lasting contribution to both her profession and our community, and for 
that she deserves our deepest gratitude.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask that this Congress join me in congratulating Dr. 
Tammie Lee Demler for being named as both a ``Woman of Distinction'' 
and the ``2004 Pharmacist of the Year.''
