The Fight for Pharmacy Justice Through Elected Officers

The author of Pharmacy In Bondage took the plight of pharmacy profession to elected officers by sending a package containing the book, flyer and other items to all elected officers including President Bush and Obama, all Senators and Representatives in 2007 and 2009 and various media houses. Glad to say that one of the Representatives, Republican Congresswoman Heather Wilson of New Mexico did not only read the book more than twice but sponsored the Bill H.R. 5780 — Medicare Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner Service Act of 2008 in 110th Congress because of the book and Bill was supported by 5 other Co-Sponsors Representatives. Unfortunately, the Bill died a premature death because there was no enough agitation and clamoring by the public/professionals. This is an issue that can save millions of lives worldwide and thousands of lives in US so the need for everydody to be on board specially those related to pharmacy one way and the other cannot be over empahsized.

The Fight for Pharmacy Justice Through
US Court System

Motion to grant Pharmacist/Pharmacy equal protection under the Law

Besides elected officers, the author equally took pharmacy quest for justice to the court. The author sued American Medical Association (AMA) and American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to court over pharmacy pathetic condition. The documents relating to the complaint of Plaintiff and respond from Defendants are displayed below for all and sundry. Pay attention to the Plaintiff’s request for the Defendants to defined the term specialty and the criterion for meeting such definition or the reason why school curriculum enable others (Dermatology, Radiology, Urology, Dentistry, Ophthalmology/Optometry, etc) to meet the criteria and pharmacy is not or the reason why Anesthetic (pharmacy’s baby according to the author) is a specialty and pharmacy, the parent is not and others. In response, the Defendants saddled with the overwhelming task of lack of defense could only afford two unreasonable excuses which are we are not in Florida (referring to their office locations but have members all over the nation include Florida and of course if any new member from Florida solicit for their organizations’ membership they will gladly accept them) and we are not Government or law makers (ironically besides other regulatory activities relating to medical field in US, they were the ones that threw their weights behind recognition of Anesthetic as a specialty board of Medicine in 1941 because of Surgeons’ agitation and that was without the government/law makers involvement). Anyway, after all said and done and with no major support from anywhere the author in the spirit of he who fights and retrieve lives to fight another day decided to temporarily withdraw the case from court.

two pharmacy in bondage books


Note: 1st Edition has two(2) different book titles, but it is just the same book.

The book gives an historical account of pharmacy, and makes a case that pharmacists, with their extensive knowledge of drugs and how they interact with each other and in humans, are underutilized by our medical profession.
