Imagine Your Future Here
P4 LENDELLE RAYMOND: I guess when people think of pharmacy, they always think of their retail pharmacist at your local community. So they always think we're just there to fill their prescription. Just count the pill, put them in, give them a 30-day supply. But of course, we are more than that.
DESCRIPTION: Text, Imagine a career of endless possibilities.
