The community pharmacy workforce has a unique presence at the forefront of patient care by being our patients’ advocates, educators, and encouragers. We are positioned to provide innovative ways to enhance and impact the lives of our patients by building trust, breaking down barriers, and implementing services that bring greater access to care and medications. Community pharmacy is uniquely situated within a multidisciplinary practice to provide the continuum of care that our patients need and deserve.
This section has given community pharmacists and technicians a distinct voice and platform to provide to provide their thoughts and opinions that improve themselves and their communities. As we charge forward with new ideas and perspectives, we can help set standards for community pharmacy practice. We have so much to gain as a profession by collaborating with each other.
It has been an honor to serve on the Executive Committee for this section over the past two years. This opportunity has allowed me to work with some great leaders. I am exceedingly proud of the work that we have started and seeing the impact it is making on members of this section already. I would be grateful and honored to serve as chair-elect and use the leadership experiences and knowledge gained these past couple of years to continue carrying out the strategic priorities that have been set forth and help promote new strategies for the future. I look forward to continued collaboration, opportunities, and advancement of our profession in the community pharmacy workforce.
