Position Statement:

I am passionate about our responsibility to advocate for our profession.  So much of our profession is regulated by men and women that have no experience in pharmacy and no understanding of the opportunities that they can unlock by tapping into the expertise of the pharmacy profession.  I believe that we must stand up with one voice and be heard by our legislators and educate them on the benefits that a pharmacist can offer to our communities.  Provider status is a huge opportunity for us and we cannot afford to let that slip by.   The Florida Pharmacy Association offers us a large organization and the opportunity to be that one large voice and to be heard and acknowledged as the vital part of the health care community that we are.  It is my hope that as the region 6 director, I can add my voice to the many that work tirelessly to be heard and to help effect a change that will positively impact our profession and the patients that we care for everyday.
