Reasons why you decided to run for the board: I wanted to become involved in this organization to learn about the issues facing the pharmacy industry. I also wanted to join the organization to hear the ideas and opinions of pharmacists dealing with issues in the industry. I felt that being involved in this organization would inform me about areas of pharmacy that I otherwise would not know about.
