Meet Vivian Bradley Johnson
I believe in the value and worth of every human being.
I strive to make the most of my life and to help others do the same. No matter what title or position we hold, I believe we are all equal and valuable human beings with the ability to make a positive contribution to society. Pharmacists are still among the most highly trusted professions. I would like to help ASHP work with national, state, and local entities to recognize pharmacists as being an integral part of the leadership, population health, and acute care team.
I believe in improving conditions and processes to ensure positive outcomes.
I chose pharmacy to help make a positive difference in the lives of others through this profession. I believe ASHP is positioned to help pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to work collaboratively within and outside of the profession to achieve positive outcomes.
I believe in helping to develop and mentor others to reach their full potential.
I am a servant leader. I believe a great leader finds joy in helping others reach their full potential. This perspective has helped me to inspire, encourage, and guide others to contribute and pursue their personal and professional goals. I believe I can positively contribute to ASHP’s leadership and mentoring programs.
I am honored to be among the candidates for the ASHP Board of Directors and would work hard to promote the pharmacy profession, eliminate healthcare disparities, and lend support to ASHP members seeking professional growth.
