Independent pharmacy. Sure, you can go at it alone, but why? There’s a reason why we also call our industry community pharmacy. We have access to a whole network of knowledge that can be shared, so why not connect with other health care colleagues? We sat down with Tony Willoughby at Thrive…

Scott Pace

Kavanaugh Pharmacy

As a pharmacist, every frustration you encounter is shadowed by the satisfaction your work brings you. But what if that frustration can’t be solved with better technology or more innovation?
