I have always viewed the role of the pharmacist as that of a healthcare bridge. In the community setting, the pharmacist is the face of every patient's day-to-day healthcare experience, often supporting patient understanding and ensuring medication safety and compliance. Within institutional settings, pharmacists are integral in communicating up-to-date information in real-time to members of every clinical profession. It is this fundamental truth that makes the pharmacy profession such a perfect fit with the mission of Verywell Health.
