Someone on Insta posted about what other celebrations we’d like to see beyond celebrations for weddings and births of children…

…well, there’s plenty!

I’ve celebrated with many friends their weddings, their children, etc. but as a single gal, I’m wondering — where’s the parties for the rest of us? …


Friends….Romans….lend me your bedazzled slippers!

Recently, I watched the Amazon 2021 film version of Cinderella to much pre-fairy tale film hype touted by Prime Video for some time. Let’s just say that this most recent version…left me wanting to review historically all the Cinderella films to dissect what worked, and…


Pharmacists are held to an Oath: The Oath of a Pharmacist.

There are two sections of that Oath that apply to today's post:

  1. I will hold myself and my colleagues to the highest principles of our profession’s moral, ethical and legal conduct.
  2. I will embrace and advocate changes that improve…

So many career questions and opportunities — so little time. So, I wanted to return to the basics — the major career routes — and share how or what you need to get into these major routes. Ready?

  1. Retail/Community Practice — not going to talk about this one, since the schools do a good job to get into this career route for pharmacists.

Orgs to watch here include NCPA, and your state pharmacy association.

I’ve been thinking about this a LOT as we move away from the pandemic: What is a great 21st-century leader?

Every year about this time — we hear all about the graduates and the class of 2021, or whatever year it happens to be — the struggles they went through, the achievements they made, etc.
