This week marked the end of my first year as CEO of APhA. From the moment I stepped into APhA headquarters, the World Home of Pharmacy, I was humbled by this amazing organization and all that APhA has accomplished in its 169-year history. I take very seriously the responsibility that comes with leading this storied institution. I've never doubted that the members of this profession had the mettle to look a dragon in the eye and slay it, but this year I've watched that talent and fortitude in action, and it's perhaps the most unforgettable sight of my life. The honor of supporting and advocating for our pharmacy heroes has changed my life forever and together, we’re changing the world for good.
