When Janet MacDonnell became involved with the New Brunswick Department of Health as a subject matter expert on its Drug information System, she quickly realized she had more to learn, despite her 26 years of experience as a pharmacist.
As a result, MacDonnell will be putting her award grant towards a diploma in Health Information Management at McMaster University, which she believes will assist her in becoming a leader in health information management for the whole profession.
“I am thrilled to be selected as one of the first recipients of the Wellspring Pharmacy Leadership Awards in memory of Barb Wells,” says MacDonnell. “For me, pharmacy is not a job, it is who I am. I cherish the fact we have so many opportunities within our profession to learn new things and influence the direction of the profession.”
