Community pharmacy directly serves and cares for those in our local areas. The community pharmacy workforce has a unique opportunity to be the frontline promoter for patients and their healthcare needs. We serve as their advocates, educators, and encouragers. We seek out innovative ways to improve the lives of our patients by building trust, breaking down barriers, and implementing services that bring greater access to care. Community pharmacy is uniquely situated within a multidisciplinary practice to provide the continuum of care that our patients need and deserve. With the creation of this ASHP section, community pharmacists and technicians have been given the platform to provide their distinct voices for our communities and workforce. As we collaborate and engage with one another, we can champion new ideas and thoughts that will set forth the tone of this section.
I have had the honor to serve as a member of the inaugural Executive Committee of the Section of Community Pharmacy Practitioners this year. This opportunity has allowed me to work with some great leaders in our profession to learn from, support, and provide guidance for this section. I would be grateful to serve as a Director-at-Large as we continue to forge ahead with the strategic priorities we have set in place and to see the impact this section will have on our communities and community pharmacy workforce.
