The National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP) named Sheila Arquette its new executive director.
"We have so many passionate volunteers who dedicate their time, energy, and talents to promote the practice of specialty pharmacy and I see my role as providing the required support, coordination and structure to ensure their continued success," Arquette said.
Arquette has been involved in the industry for years and will have an important role in her new position as she will work alongside NASO's Government Affairs Committee. Her role in this committee will be integral, as she will help in education and advocacy campaigns in Washington, D.C. with stakeholders such as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as members of Congress, lobbyists, policymakers and more.
Arquette graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Pharmacy with a bachelor of science and has also worked in retail pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, long-term care consulting and dispensing. Before coming to NASP, Arquette served as the director of pharmacy services for Independent Health.
Arquette will also support the Education Committee and Specialty Pharmacy Certification Board and the Annual Conference Committee.
