Hosted by Will Tuft – Director of Education at PioneerRx


Doug Hoey | A Conversation with NCPA CEO Doug Hoey

This weekend, the National Community Pharmacy Association (NCPA) hosted their 2020 Annual Convention where Jeff, Mark, and Marsha had the opportunity to sit down with CEO Doug Hoey. Growing up in his father’s pharmacy, Doug has transformed from a superhero in a small community to the head of a national organization, and he’s taking every eager pharmacy with him to the top. Learn first-hand how NCPA is advocating for independent pharmacies on provider status, the pharmacy payment model, COVID-19 vaccination administration, and more while getting to know the man at the front of it all.


Morgan Miller | Small Wins. Big Impact.

Morgan Miller knows that it takes a series of small wins to make a big impact. She advocates for her patients by working with local clinics and manufacturers to get them the services and medications they need - especially when no one else will. Morgan is the Director of Specialty Pharmacy at Alps Pharmacy and Founder of Remedy - a functional medicine consulting service. Our hosts Mark and Josh recall the first time they visited Morgan to interview her as one of PioneerRx’s Pharmacy Leaders, and they catch up with her to see what new ideas she’s been working on.


Tony Willoughby | Forming the Human Connection

Tony Willoughby believes that independent pharmacy should be relational, not transactional. Forming human connections with both your patients and with the physicians you collaborate with is a powerful way to bring more value as a pharmacist. Tony is the President of Catalyst Health Rx and President of Population Health at StratiFi Health, where he helps manage a clinically integrated health network of pharmacists and physicians. Join Jeff, Mark, and Marsha as they learn how building strong relationships has helped the Catalyst Health Network thrive in their communities.


Stacy Welling | Baby Bump Up Your Marketing Game

Stacy Welling may not have followed the traditional route to pharmacy ownership, but that didn’t stop her from creating a highly successful service and product line that fills a major gap in her community. Stacy is the owner of Whaley’s Pharmacy, Inc. with three locations in Jefferson City, Missouri. She is also the founder of Whaley’s Baby, a line of products and services for women and babies before, during, and after pregnancy. Jeff, Josh, and Marsha explore how marketing and innovation have shaped this dynamic business.


Michael Muniz | The Greatest Medicine of All

The greatest medicine of all is teaching people how to not need it. Michael Muniz is inspired by this every day as he helps people turn their lives around through the use of functional medicine. Michael is a trained pharmacist, nutritionist, surgical tech, President-Elect of the Texas Pharmacy Association, and owner of My NuRx Pharmacy in Harlingen, TX. Our host Will Tuft follows Michael’s inspiring journey that led him to the unique care model that he follows today.
