I have always viewed the role of the pharmacist as that of a health care bridge. In the community setting, the pharmacist is the face of each patient’s daily healthcare experience, often supporting patient understanding and ensuring medication safety and adherence. In institutional settings, pharmacists are integral to communicating up-to-date, real-time information to members of every clinical profession. It is this fundamental truth that makes the profession of pharmacist perfectly in line with Verywell Health’s mission.
