The Honest Apothecary
According to Marla Ahlgrimm, the Honest Apothecary blog offers pharmacists and others a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a retail pharmacy. It covers much more than drugs, however, and dives into faith-based leadership, daily operations, and discussions with pharmacists and other pharmacy workers across the country.
The Blonde Pharmacist
Written by Beth Lofgren, Pharm.D., The Blonde Pharmacist is one of the more active blogs in medicine. Lofgren offers insight for professionals looking to take the BCPS exam. But more than that, Marla Ahlgrimm explains that this female pharmacist/entrepreneur offers down to earth advice on everything from career advancement to safety in the pharmacy.
This blog, written by Dr. Izabella Wentz, Pharm.D., FASCP, who received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree at the age of 23, offers a ton of information about thyroid conditions and pharmaceuticals. Marla Ahlgrimm explains that a quick run through her blog topics reveals a breadth of insight on everything from dental amalgams to beauty products that might compromise women’s health.
The Pharmacy Chick
For an injection of humor, Marla Ahlgrimm recommends scrolling through the Pharmacy Chick log. Although not as active as others, it’s still a great mental break with a blogroll featuring titles such as “Damn You Autocorrect,” and “The Impatient Public.”
This is just a small sampling of the resources available for pharmacists and others interested in the world of medicine. Ahlgrimm notes, however, that each offers a unique insight into the industry and is worth a quick Google search.
