“I wish that every pharmacist understood the impact of what their voice and their resources bring to the profession.”

“You hear a lot of the banter about, every voice matters and what have you, but I can tell it is very very true. Every voice matters, and so by definition, the more voices we represent, the louder that voice becomes. The louder that voice becomes, the more impact we can have. The more impact we can have, the better the life of the pharmacist. It is absolutely inter-connected. And I wish every pharmacist could step back and think about that, in terms of how their contribution rolls up into a greater good for themselves as well as the overall profession.”

– CPhA CEO Jon Roth speaking about membership on the The Rx Buzz Pharmacy Podcast Network Listen Here


As a young practitioner, all I want to do is be engaged in our association, engaged in our profession, because if we don’t take control of our profession, someone else will.
