Alberta Pharmacists' Association
Bruce Winston is an entrepreneur and pharmacist, having graduated from the University of Alberta. In 2004, he co-founded Apex Pharmacies, which he grew to 20 pharmacies in Alberta under the Sandstone Pharmacies brand. Bruce recently sold the group of pharmacies to Neighbourly Pharmacy and is now working with the team at Neighbourly, as Head of Alberta Pharmacy Strategy and Professional Affairs. While he no longer directly owns a pharmacy, Bruce retains a deep personal commitment to the practice of pharmacy. He is a board member of the Alberta Pharmacists’ Association (RxA) and previously served as President of the organization. Bruce is dedicated to working diligently to advocate for the profession and to ensure it remains financially sustainable for a new generation of pharmacists. He hopes that through his provincial and national advocacy efforts, and by working with pharmacy students at the University of Alberta, he will assist pharmacists in launching their careers and in feeling fulfilled in their professional practices.
