David Mayper Executive Director PFOAGreetings,

During a busy July, staff members attended the annual conferences of AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal and McKesson.  Each of the wholesalers put their best foot forward in terms of education and vendor offerings.  PFOA utilized these events to meet with vendors, strategic business partners and most importantly, our members.  Business reviews were prepared and covered with the attending members who answered our requests.  I thank the entire staff for their efforts.


Jeff Grieshaber, our controller, has taken over expense report review, financial reporting and a number of other projects which will enable us to better manage, grow and improve the association. 


A vendor committee meeting was held in July as well as a Board webcast and phone conference covering key areas of consideration. 


Larry McIntosh, Don Schreiber and I attended a Choice Rx Solutions board meeting in Chicago looking at direction and options for the PBM.  Additionally, Larry McIntosh suggested a limited opportunity potentially involving one PFOA member in 15 different states


August involved training to expand some staffers’ roles in the organization as well as transitioning some responsibilities. I met with our representative from Anda. Our planned initiative is currently on hold, seemingly affected by their acquisition by Teva.  I spent time in Central Florida meeting with staff and our sales consultant who was responsible for a large part of the recent PFOA membership growth.

Greetings. it's been about two months since our annual meeting and board meeting. May flew by quickly. We went through a search process and hired a controller. His name is Jeff Grieshaber and he began this month. Since integrating Jeff into the position, we are already having positive reactions and results. We are reviewing financial activities and getting him familiar with processes.

PFOA held our Annual Meeting in Austin on April 16th at the close of the AAP conference.  We are pleased that 44 stores were represented and we appreciate their time and input.  AAP provided its retail customers and our attending members a first class program in terms of education and business opportunities.  We look forward to continuing to build a stronger bond between AAP and PFOA.  We thank them for allowing our staff to be a part of their conference.


Board Elections were held and tabulated.  Elected to the PFOA Board were: Doug Coyle, Todd Pendergraft and Ron Robichaux. Elected to the PFOA Medicine Shoppe Board was David Cole.

February is American Heart Month

Posted Feb. 8, 2016


Use this theme as an opportunity to market your heart health products to customers. Create an end-cap of heart-healthy products, such as omegas, fish oil, coenzymes, red yeast rice, and other vitamins. Place a red heart on the shelf next to any heart-healthy item in your store (e.g., CoQ10, aspirin). Create signs that read, "Look for the red heart © and give the gift of health!" and place them throughout your store during the month of February.
