Ash Shihora is the Pharmacist/Owner of VIP Pharmacy in Welland, Ontario. He has obtained degrees in English, Chemistry, Pharmacy and a graduate degree, thinking he would like to be a research scientist. This however, was not his calling as he needed more interaction with people, than his research allowed. Eagerly, he returned to the practice of pharmacy and soon grew to enjoy the many varied patients that crossed his path. He truly embraced the helping aspects of this profession and developed empathic rapport with his patients. He took their needs to heart and
developed programs for various sub-groups of patients. Most recently, I have found a passionate interest in the field of addiction treatment. The practice of pharmacy in this field is in its infancy, but I have great hopes for developing ever new and imaginative programs for this group of people.
