Source of Inspiration
I entered pharmacy to make meaningful changes in opioid and naloxone dispensing after I was over-prescribed painkillers in the military and returned home to see my fellow veterans overdosing. We raised our hands to serve overseas, not to die at home under the care of our doctors.
Established my 501c3 nonprofit EMO Health in pharmacy school went on to achieve the following:
If you do what is easy, your life will be hard. If you do what is hard, your life will become easy.
Vision for Pharmacy
