Delivering top-of-license community focused pharmacy care in rural Georgia
"My autonomous pharmacy vision is to remove human touch from the dispensing process and to move pharmacy to a zero-harm culture."
Soon after high school, Chris Newman was hired to work in the pharmacy at John D. Archbold Medical Center in his hometown of Thomasville, Ga. It was an experience that shaped his life and career.
“After pharmacy school, I was inspired to return and make a difference in the community I grew up in,” he said.
Today, as the member of the health system’s executive team responsible for the pharmacy, radiology, lab, materials management, supply chain, sleep and neuro diagnostics departments, he’s giving back in ways that his teenage self could have never imagined.
