Dear board of pharmacy,

I am writing to express my concern about the current work conditions for pharmacists. The pharmacy field is facing a growing issue of understaffing and increasing workloads, leading to pharmacist burnout and a higher risk of medication errors. Corporate pressures often prioritize metrics over pharmacist well-being.

I urge the Board of Pharmacy to consider regulations that improve the work environment for pharmacists, addressing staffing levels, workload management, and policies that prioritize well-being. These changes will prevent errors, enhance patient care, and create a safer environment.

Please take action to protect both patients and the pharmacists who serve them.
