Celebrating Women in Pharmacy: Overcoming Obstacles in Pharmacy Ownership

October 2, 2020

October 12th is Women Pharmacist Day and this month we’re celebrating all women in pharmacy! According to the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, more than half of pharmacy students in 2017 were women. Yet there is a much smaller percentage of female independent pharmacy owners. On this episode, we feature Kim Jones, pharmacist and owner of Prescription Shop of Stuart in Stuart, Florida, and Mike Bollinger, Senior Vice President and Head of Pharmacy at Live Oak Bank. Kim gives us a look into how she pursued owning her own business and how she worked with Live Oak Bank to make it happen.
