Providence, R.I. — The Rhode Island Department of Health (HEALTH) today announced its recruitment of new members for the state Pharmacy Board, which licenses and regulates the pharmacy profession, and approves standards of basic pharmacy education programs. HEALTH is currently recruiting one registered independent pharmacy professional and two public members, and is particularly interested in expanding the diversity of the Board.
"The Pharmacy Board establishes standards for training and conduct, reviews license applications, and investigates and disciplines cases of professional misconduct," said Director of HEALTH, Michael Fine, M.D. "This Board serves an important role in protecting the public, and serving on the Pharmacy Board is a great opportunity to get involved in our state's public health infrastructure and process."
The Pharmacy Board meets monthly at the Department of Health in Providence. Board members are required to use laptop computers, password-protected thumb drives, the Internet and email.
