5 Roads into Loving Your Retail Pharmacy Career PART 5 - Pharmacy Podcast Episode 364

5 Roads into Loving Your Retail Pharmacy Career PART 5 

Special Guest Ron Snow, Manager, Professional & College Relations CVS Health 

The FINAL CHAPTER in the series, PART 5: 

Play nice with others – This is a combo of all the 4 previous steps, but ask yourself how you and your pharmacy business can play nicely with others. Is there a visiting nurse service you could partner with in the community? Is there a way you could organize a community task force for disaster relief if, God forbid, something happens to your community?

What about a tox away day? Can you set up a phone tree with other pharmacists to prevent theft and diversion in pharmacy? What can you do with strong non profits in your area that would help the community? Can you bring the community IN to your pharmacy to hang out and be a spot of joy and hope for your neighborhood, instead of another icky task they have to check off of their list? Ask yourself one more time what your strengths are, and how you can add them to your world around you to create a better retail pharmacy world. Maybe that’s through a broader, interprofessional pathway that could lead you to feeling FANTASTIC about your career of pharmacy.

After all, you picked a great profession! The sky is the limit….!

At the same time there must be 100% transparency on quality and cost parameters so the patient makes an educated decision. It was this noble notion and his years of experience in the Pharmaceutical Industry that led to the formation of PAYSA Health Services (PHS), where any patient seeking the best care can look for options and form a well informed decision about seeking treatment in a foreign country.

He is also CEO and Founder of TCS Coaching and Business Consulting, a consultancy that provides strategic operational, marketing, and organizational support to individuals and businesses within the specialty pharmacy and pharmaceutical industries.

Dr. Haulsee holds a Doctor of Pharmacy from Mercer University and BS in Biology from East Tennessee University.
