After 10 years working as a retail pharmacist at The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy in Emporia, Kansas – the oldest working business in the small town – Amber Haag, RPh., bought the pharmacy from owner and pharmacist Don Hill. Haag, also a wife and mother of two, talks frankly about the pros and cons of pharmacy ownership and explains why she sees owning a pharmacy not just as a job, but as a way of life.
