Telling the Story of Pharmacy

Article

More than once, I have heard someone suggest that we ought to have a television program that puts a positive spin on pharmacy.

More than once, I have heard someone suggest that we ought to have a television program that puts a positive spin on pharmacy. The suggestion comes from the perspective that such an effort could tell the story of pharmacy beyond what a pharmacist does in his or her daily interactions.

Some might suggest that writing a book depicting the pharmacist as a hero might accomplish the same thing. Recently, I attended the Virginia Pharmacists Association Annual Convention, where I met pharmacist David Perry at an exhibit table and found out that he has written several books using pharmacy practice as a storyline.

In Perry’s first book, The Cyclops Conspiracy, Jason Rodgers is a fictional pharmacist who got involved in an international terrorist plot working in the community pharmacy previously owned by his mentor. The plot’s suspense and intrigue kept me engaged, but I also liked how contemporary pharmacy issues were interwoven into the story.

Because the author is a practicing pharmacist, I want to give him a plug. Check him out at www.daveperry.org. I can’t wait to start reading his next book, which is based on a hospital pharmacy situation.
