On Monday, September 14, 2015, Good Day Pharmacy Chief Operating Officer, Vicki Einhellig, RPh, was appointed to the Colorado State Board of Pharmacy by Gov. John Hickenlooper as he announced several Boards and Commissions appointments. Ms. Einhellig’s term on the board will run through July of 2019.
The Colorado State Board of Pharmacy serves under the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to protect public health by promoting the highest standards of pharmacy practice through effective licensure and enforcement of regulations. In short, the Board examines applicants, holds disciplinary hearings to issue and revoke pharmaceutical licenses and inspects pharmacies.
“I am excited and flattered to be appointed to this professional board of dedicated people who want to set the highest of standards for the pharmacy industry in Colorado,” said Ms. Einhellig.
Good Day Pharmacy is an independent, family-owned company operating under the Health Mart umbrella with nine pharmacies in Northern Colorado, and employs 140 Colorado residents. Its principals are David Lamb, Vicki Einhellig, and Nancy Lamb. Collaboratively, all three owners serve on several organization boards: Rx Plus, Independent Pharmacy Cooperative, Independent Advisory Board, Poudre Valley Health System Ethics Board, Long Term Care Network, and local community associations. Good Day Pharmacy participates with the Wyoming Medication Drug Program (WMDP) which provides immediate prescription help and advice on lower-cost alternatives, and improves prescription access for Wyoming residents who cannot afford medications. Good Day also hosts internship programs and student rotations for pharmacy school students and pharmacy technicians. This year, Good Day Pharmacy celebrates its 30th year in business, providing community pharmacies for residents of Northern Colorado.
