Pharmacy Leaders Toast Drug Topics


Levy, Sandra, Drug Topics


Many R.Ph.s see Drug Topics as a trusted friend

No anniversary celebration would be complete without a few toasts and brief speeches. So Drug Topics asked a sampling of pharmacy leaders to reminisce about what the magazine has meant to them throughout the years and what they like most about the publication.

Here are some of the nice things they had to say:

Bruce Roberts, R.Phv executive VP/CEO of the National Community Pharmacists Association, said, "Drug Topics has served the pharmacy profession not only as an invaluable source of news and information on political, practice, and business topics, but also as an advocate for the profession. This is a time when all pharmacists, regardless of their practice setting, need to stay informed on changes in pharmacy practice, legislative and regulatory developments, and marketplace pressures. Drug Topics provides the kind of timely news coverage pharmacists need to respond to the challenges of a changing, competitive practice environment."

Henri Manasse Jr., executive VP/CEO of ASHP, offered this assessment: "I have been an avid and constant reader of Drug Topics since my student days. The current news in our profession, in addition to the commentaries and analyses, has been an important part of my efforts to keep up with what is going on in pharmacy. Your journalists and editors keep a good balance as they prepare each issue between the various segments of pharmacy practice. Most important, there is a clear professionalism that is displayed in the quality of the writing and choice of topics and their elaboration.

"Since joining ASHP, I have enjoyed and appreciated the bond of friendship and professional relationship that has developed between the staff of Drug Topics and the ASHP 'family.' You cover the issues of health-system pharmacy in a comprehensive fashion. You dig deep where required. Judy Chi and Tony Vecchione are always active participants in our press briefings, and they are never shy about asking us the tough questions. Thanks for being part of our profession in a sustained and committed fashion."

John Cans, executive VP/CEO of the American Pharmacists Association, reminisced, "When I look back at all of the issues facing the pharmacy profession over the years, Drug Topics has been there asking the tough questions every step of the way. Here's to another 150 years of excellent reporting."

John Rector, senior VP and general counsel of NCPA, commented, "Even in the years 1971 to 1977 when I was a chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee, my staff of lawyers and investigators and I used Drug Topics in a variety of ways: to understand the sector and the issues confronting the practice of pharmacy, especially the local privately owned business and for ideas for legislation or leads for hearing subjects and/or witnesses. Throughout my years as general counsel and senior VP with the National Association of Retail Druggists [NARD] and now NCPA, I have found Drug Topics to be a timely and reliable source of essential information. Access on-line to the publication and your frequent updates have only served to enhance its value."

Mary Ann Wagner, R.Ph., senior W, policy and pharmacy regulatory affairs of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, expressed this sentiment, "Congratulations to Drug Topics on your 150th anniversary! We commend you for continuously keeping pharmacists abreast of current issues and trends in the profession. Personally, I enjoy reading the letters to the editor to see what pharmacists across the country have on their minds and how they react to the various articles that are published."

Lucinda Maine, Ph.D., R.Ph., executive VP of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, offered these words, "I have consistently thought of Drug Topics as pharmacy's Newsweek. …
