Our interview is with Adma Metcalf, PharmD with
Adam grew up as a second-generation pharmacist in his father’s independent pharmacy. While there he learned the crucial role that an independent pharmacist can play in community health care. His education and appreciation for pharmacy continued, when as an undergraduate, he traveled to a medical mission in Guatemala. Here, his previous studies coalesced with pharmacy—united by the goal of simply helping others.
This patient-focused work inspired Adam to dedicate himself to serving his own community. Adam focuses on individual services such as compounding medicines, medical therapy management (MTM), immunizations, and collaboration with physicians. He believes that exceeding traditional pharmacy model standards means “coming out from behind the counter” and adopting a patient-centered approach.
