S07E03: Amplifying Pharmacy through Collaborations with Ahunna Freeman

Hello fellow humans and healthcare leaders! I hope everyone had an amazing Valentine’s Day and keeping up with the theme, I am beyond honored to introduce my next guest who has so much heart and courage. With this episode, we hope to inspire other pharmacists to lean into their unique qualities and coaching. My guest’s message to listeners is this: use the power of collaboration to fulfill your professional calling even if it’s outside your comfort zone; just learn as you go.

You don’t have to wait on the sidelines to be granted the professional power & permission to help and heal our patients. There are organizations, patients, and providers that are looking for our expertise. For the ones that aren’t, we’ll keep educating them along the way without compromising our potential.
