Pharmacists Support: family business

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Angela Puim smiling. March is Pharmacist Awareness Month. Pharmacists Support.

Owning your own pharmacy is a hefty responsibility, but for Angela the hard work and long hours are both familiar and rewarding. Angela and her sister Gina grew up in and out of Preston Medical Pharmacy in Cambridge.

Founded in 1985, the pharmacy was owned by their father. He retired around the same time that Angela was graduating from the School of Pharmacy, and it was only logical to keep the business in the family.

“One of the biggest rewards of owning our own pharmacy is being able to practice pharmacy the way we want to practice,” she says. Angela and her sister offer a variety of clinical services to meet the needs of their patients, many of whom they’ve known for decades.

Angela is proud to be a local business owner and a supportive member of her community.

“In our case, there are many patients that are second and third generation patients with our pharmacy. They remember how we treated their parents and grandparents and are thankful for the excellent service.”

The Pharmacists Support series is issued by the School of Pharmacy for #PAM2017. It runs every Tuesday and Thursday in March.
