BROWNSVILLE, Pa. — The Pharmacy Podcast Network (PPN) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2023, 50 Most Influential Leaders in Pharmacy. Coming in at number one is, Nadia Ahmad, PharmD, who works at a Walgreens pharmacy in Middlesboro, Kentucky. Ahmad works as a dispensing pharmacist for Walgreens in Middlesboro, KY. She is cited for exemplary leadership, customer care and for her support for mental health issues, writing a book about being a pharmacist, and even incorporating a successful pet medication aspect of the pharmacy.
The 50 Most Influential Leaders in Pharmacy program was launched in 2021 by the PPN as a way to draw attention to industry professionals whose thoughts, actions, accomplishments and leadership have helped solve clinical, customer service and financial problems. Todd Eury, CEO and founder of PPN, says the program is designed to recognize individuals that have had a significant impact on the thoughts, behaviors and accomplishments of others in the profession. Honorees come from a variety of practice backgrounds and are elected via a social media campaign that allows people to vote for leaders they know in 14 categories, such as: health system, chain, independent, association management, academia, entrepreneurs and others.
Eury says the scope and format of the Pharmacy 50 program makes it possible for both pharmacist and non-pharmacist to be honored. He adds, “I think this makes the Pharmacy 50 program the most inclusive awards program in the industry.
