Transitions and Board Spotlight: Pharmacy Chair

Over the past month WCCC has been transitioning to our new board members. They have all taken up their responsibilities and begun integrating their own ideas and skills into their positions. Our first spotlight of the new Board is from Daniel Poston, one of the Pharmacy Chairs:

“I got involved with WCCC because I wanted to help make a difference in patient’s lives. I’m one of the Pharmacy Chairs—we are involved with helping patients find low-cost prescription medications, subsidizing the cost of those medications through our reimburse program, and connecting patients with programs that can assist them with obtaining low cost or free medication. Given the increasing cost of pharmaceuticals in the USA, I feel very gratified by helping patients access medications they need and educating them on navigating medication costs to allow them to continue to manage their conditions. Overall, I think helping our patients secure the medication they need is an essential component of the clinic providing quality, comprehensive, and compassionate care to all of our patients.”
