Pharmacists often feel a great responsibility to be there for patients when disaster hits. One pharmacy owner will describe the experience of responding when a tornado leveled his community. While it is important to have a plan for the pharmacy, it is equally important for you and your employees to have a plan at home. Learn to make actionable plans for your business, your family and how to encourage your employees to do the same. Finally, learn how NCPA, state and other national organizations support members.
