Patti Peeples, RPh, PhD, President and Founder of HealthEconomics.Com, was an invited speaker and mentor for the Center for Entrepreneurial Development at the Presbyterian College of Pharmacy, located in Clinton, South Carolina, on March 18th and 19th, 2013. Dr. Peeples spoke on “Creating a Successful Financial Plan”, and presented to an audience of pharmacy professors and students who aspire to be successful entrepreneurs in a variety of pharmacy-related career paths.
As a pioneer in the health-based communication industry, and because of her ability to inspire young pharmacists and aspiring business leaders, Dr. Peeples was one of a small number of successful pharmacy entrepreneurs invited to speak as part of the Workshop Series coordinated by Presbyterian College’s Center for Entrepreneurial Development. She offered advice on how to successfully manage an ever-evolving internet-based business within the pharmaceutical arena.
Dr. Peeples said, “In today’s multi-faceted global business arena, pharmacists have more career options than ever before. These opportunities are no longer limited to traditional community and hospital pharmacy or the pharmaceutical industry, but now include career paths within the pharmaceutical internet and technology arena. I want to share the vision and success of HealthEconomics.Com with this dynamic group of students and encourage them to push the envelope beyond traditional business models and be leaders in the medical, business, and technology field.” She added, “HealthEconomics.Com is an example of a unique business model that has grown as a direct result of my education received in pharmacy school and from business mentors such as those teaching within the Center for Entrepreneurial Development at Presbyterian College of South Carolina.”
Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy’s (PCSP) Center for Entrepreneurial Development (CED) helps students explore the wide variety of pharmacy-related career paths available after graduation, all while cultivating an entrepreneurial spirit. The CED offers educational programming on entrepreneurial topics through the Workshop Series and networking opportunities with business leaders from across the region through the Mentor Network.
