Community Practice Academy
Steve Singer, Bellegrove Pharmacy
Melissa Hansen, Fred Meyer Pharmacy
This Academy is designed to meet the needs of pharmacists working in
community practice care settings including independents,
chains, grocery, and mass merchandisers. The mission of the Community Academy is to develop and enhance leadership skills, business skills and
entrepreneurial skills of practicing pharmacists, pharmacy students and
pharmacy technicians. This is a forum to discuss practice challenges
and concerns as well as share best practices and pearls of wisdom with
colleagues practicing in similar settings.
We are still in our formative stage and willingly accepting volunteers to assist in the progression of the Community Academy. We will ask members and outside experts to enthusiastically share their ‘best practices’ through presentations, workshops and Continuing Education Programs. Goals of the Academy include building acquaintanceship and support among colleagues who are committed to growth, experimentation and improvement in pharmacy.
The Community Practice Academy will next meet on October 8th at 3pm at the WSPA Annual Meeting.
