HRG to present to Campbell University pharmacy students for seventh consecutive year



Hamacher Resource Group's Tom Boyer

WAUKESHA, Wis. — Hamacher Resource Group has announced that Tom Boyer will present to first-year students in the Pharmacy Practice program at Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., for the seventh consecutive year.

On March 25, Boyer, a 20-plus-year veteran of the retail consumer healthcare industry, director of national accounts, and member of the owners group at HRG, will discuss the retail pharmacy side of the business, including pharmacy layout and front-of-store merchandising principles.

Boyer’s connection with Campbell University began through his relationship with Mutual Drug, Durham, N.C., which has been an HRG client for 33 years and Hamacher’s first wholesaler client. Boyer learned of Mutual Drug’s relationship with Campbell University, among other pharmacy schools it supports, back in 2008. Boyer, who conducts CE sessions for pharmacists at industry events, offered guest lecturer support to the pharmacy school and has been asked back every spring.

“I’m glad we could facilitate this long-standing relationship between HRG and the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences at Campbell University. We believe it’s important to expose future pharmacists to the business aspects of running a pharmacy — both the opportunities and challenges,” stated David Moody, Mutual Drug CEO.

Boyer added, “It has been a pleasure to present to a new class of pharmacy students each year. I enjoy hearing their perspectives and getting their feedback. I’m grateful that Mutual Drug brought this opportunity forward and that we can help support something we both are passionate about.”
