We interview the Executive Vice President - Ed Hesterlee PharmD. with the American College of Apothecaries.
The ACA was founded on May 9, 1940 in Richmond, Virginia. In 1978, the Research & Education Foundation was established, and in 1998 the American College of Veterinary Pharmacists began. The existence of these three separate entities allows for the provision of numerous benefits to the Fellowship and the profession. Our Research & Education Resource Center was founded in 1998 in Bartlett, Tennessee.
The basic purpose of the American College of Apothecaries is the translation and dissemination of knowledge, research data and recent developments in professional pharmacy practice for the benefit of pharmacists, pharmacy students and the public. This is achieved through regular distribution of periodicals, development of major publications and continuing education courses on clinical and administrative topics and conducting educational conferences.
Dr. Hesterlee is the Executive Vice President of the American College of Apothecaries, and part-time consultant to the pharmaceutical industry, national pharmacy associations and small business operations interested in entrepreneurship, improved customer service and relationship marketing.

Ohio State University College of Pharmacy History:
As one of the six original colleges, The College of Pharmacy established itself on Ohio State’s campus in 1885. Armed with only $200 for supplies and one part-time faculty member, its founders firmly established pharmacy at the University. Since that time, the College has led the field of Pharmacy, setting many firsts and educating some of the brightest young students. From Roy Darlington, the first African American in the nation to receive a PhD in pharmaceutical sciences to one of the first distance-learning programs at Ohio State, Pharmacy continues its tradition as a leader in research and practice. Today, the College is home to world-class faculty, researchers, and students who are leading the way in pharmacy education, practice, and research.
Roland Thomas began his career with a national wholesale drug company. He became the youngest Pharmacy Design Consultant in the company’s history. He left the company in 1970 to begin his own company. He sold his interest in Display Options, Inc. in 2001 and at the writing of this book is a pharmacy planning specialist with their Rx Planning Solutions division. He served as president of both the North Carolina and South Carolina Traveling Members Auxiliary that were created to support each state’s Annual Pharmacy Conventions. Roland served on the South Carolina Board of Pharmacy in 1987 1988 as an ex-officio member. He has written several articles for The Southern Pharmacy Journal and The Palmetto Pharmacist. Many of his projects were featured in the SPJ with cover stories, one of which was shown on the front cover. Roland searched far and wide, without success, to find a handbook covering many of the topics covered in his book. That further inspired him to create one that could possibly help independent pharmacists make better choices.
