Baylor Rice, RPh, FIACP Elected IACP Board of Directors President-Elect
HOUSTON – March 2016 – Baylor Rice, RPh, FIACP, owner/pharmacist of South River Compounding Pharmacy in Richmond, Va., has been elected President-elect to the 2016 International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) Board of Directors by the IACP membership, and will serve in this role through January 2017.
Mr. Rice has served on the IACP Board since 2011. IACP is an association representing more than 4,000 pharmacists, technicians, students, and members of the compounding community who focus upon the specialty practice of pharmacy compounding. Pharmacy compounding is the long-established tradition in pharmacy practice that enables physicians to prescribe and patients to take medicines that are specially prepared by pharmacists to meet patients’ individual needs.
“Having the clinical and professional expertise of individuals like Baylor Rice is essential to IACP's role in developing the best practices of compounding pharmacists everywhere,” says, Gary McCrory, IACP President. “Each of our volunteer Board members brings unique experience as both practitioners and business managers to guide IACP and its membership. We are fortunate to have Baylor as part of our leadership team."
Baylor Rice is a second generation pharmacist and has an impressive track record as a compounding pharmacist and health professional. He has been a licensed pharmacist since 1994. After earning his degree at the Medical College of Virginia, he worked in community pharmacies. In 1998, Mr. Rice and his wife opened South River Compounding Pharmacy, Inc. His vision of treating each patient based on their individual needs and using a team approach by working together with the patients’ practitioner has proved to be quite successful with positive outcomes for the patients.
In October 2002, Mr. Rice received the Human Health Care (HHC) Pharmacy Recognition Award from Eisai Inc. and U.S. Pharmacist. The award was presented “in recognition of his professional contributions in the Community practice of pharmacy, which improved the quality of care provided to patients with Alzheimer’s disease and demonstrated a commitment and dedication that reflects Eisai’s human health care philosophy.”
The International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) is an association representing more than 4,000 pharmacists, technicians, students, and members of the compounding community who focus upon the specialty practice of pharmacy compounding. Compounding pharmacists work directly with prescribers including physicians, nurse practitioners and veterinarians to create customized medication solutions for patients and animals whose healthcare needs cannot be met by manufactured medications. More than 150,000 patients and prescribers also belong to our organization via the grassroots advocacy group, Partnership for Personalized Prescriptions (P3). IACP's mission of protecting, promoting and advancing personalized medication solutions is critical for patient healthcare.
