A Reflection on the Pharmacy Leadership Academy

In 2016, Zack Dumont enrolled in the Pharmacy Leadership Academy. One of the things he was most grateful for was the opportunity for self-reflection. This inspired him to start a blog about his experience in each course. “There were more than a few dozen “ah-ha” moments,” writes Zack.  In his blog, he reflects on the benefits of the readings, discussion boards, “what to do and what not to do” guides, webinars, and more.
