Creating opportunities

Showing women the way to ownership and helping established owners grow their businesses is the mission-and passion-of the Women in Pharmacy Initiative. In 2010, Cardinal Health launched this first-of-its-kind program that offers women the resources, support and inspiration they need to start, manage and grow their independent pharmacy. Women in Pharmacy connects female pharmacy students and women at every stage of their pharmacy career with a network of existing female owners. We also provide a forum for women owners to network with their peers.

Our mission

To inspire, facilitate and support women's participation in and ownership of community pharmacies. We accomplish our mission through three focus areas:
