District IV

Lucy Hazebrook, RPh, MS, FACA
Pharmacy name: Medistat
Years Served on IACP Board: none

Provide a brief bio of your career.

Please provide a statement of why you want to serve.
Compounding pharmacists are an elite group, with high standards and a keen awareness of the environments in which we try to fulfill our professional responsibilities. The synergistic effects of the relationships built through IACP have been effective in promoting and advancing pharmacy. I would be honored to say I was a part of this advancement as we continue to grow our community, broaden our knowledge, increase awareness and continue a strong political presence.

Shawn E. Hodges, PharmD
Pharmacy name: Innovation Compounding, Inc
Years Served on IACP Board: none

Provide a brief bio of your career.
After graduating from Texas Tech School of Pharmacy in 2001, I was accepted into a one-year visiting scientist program with Eli Lilly. Located next to the FDA, I served as a liaison between Eli Lilly and FDA, sharing FDA’s thoughts to the regulatory team at Lilly headquarters. Upon completion, I worked for Hospice Pharmacia, consulting with prescribers about the appropriate use of hospice-related medications. The position was very educational, and I saw firsthand the clinical benefits from compounded preparations. In 2007, I purchased Innovation Compounding, and currently provide both sterile and non-sterile compounded preparations.

Please provide a statement of why you want to serve.
My goal is to contribute and continue IACP’s mission of promoting and protecting the art and science of pharmacy compounding by communicating with federal and state regulatory bodies not only the importance of pharmacy compounding, but also share the resulting impact of inconsistent and incomplete guidance with respect to both 503A and 503B facilities. In order for compounding pharmacists to succeed in their role as problem-solvers, outside entities, (i.e. regulators and 3rd party providers) need to know that many of the regulations, current or proposed, are enhancing patient harm through restricted access of compounds.

David S. Joseph, RPh, FIACP
Pharmacy name: Physician Specialty Compounding
Years Served on IACP Board: none

Provide a brief bio of your career.
I have been practicing pharmacy for 41 years, first in Ohio and now in Florida for the past 28 years. My first 11 years were involved in retail pharmacy where I honed my management and people skills. I then went to work for MEDCO, becoming a floor supervisor. That company was very quality oriented and sent me to a “Quality College” where I learned to adapt quality concepts to pharmacy production. I went on to manage PMSI, which is a national pharmacy organization serving the workers compensation market.

In 2005, I was employed by AnazaoHealth, a pharmacy operation very much involved inn sterile and non-sterile compounding. This was at the very start (2004) of the rollout of USP <797>. It became apparent that the only way that a pharmacy operation of any significant size could keep a close check on these requirements was to put a dedicated entity in place to monitor compliance. AnazaoHealth was the first independent operation to install a dedicated department for quality compliance consisting of; Director, Corporate QA Manager and Department QA manager. This served us very well, especially in the light of the recent FDA visits.

I have recently moved (March) to my present job where I am also applying those QA concepts.

Additionally, I am very involved with both State and Federal Pharmacy Board and legislative events. I attend nearly every Florida Pharmacy Board meeting and am currently a candidate for appointment and I actively participated and interacted with the principals involved in the drafting of the DQSA language. I have also given lectures and written articles pertaining to quality in compounding.

Please provide a statement of why you want to serve.
I feel that is very important that pharmacists have the opportunity to control their own professional destiny. Too often, members of our profession are “blind-sided” by rules and regulations that may be counter-productive to our ability to practice efficiently and safely. As a member of IACP, I am proud to be a participant in the process towards better practice for compounding pharmacy. Participating as a board member would be the next logical step for me.

Thank you for the consideration

I have served the compounding profession as a compounder and owner of Keystone Pharmacy since 2003.

I have served on the IACP board since 2012.

Continuing to fight these battles is the only way that our profession will survive. We have made recent gains, but the fight continues. I am committed to fighting with reason, patience and a level head!

Brenda Jensen, CPhT, CNMT, MBA
Pharmacy name: Compounding Consultants, LLC
Years Served on IACP Board: none

Provide a brief bio of your career.
I currently work with about 120 compounding pharmacies in 40 states to achieve or maintain compliance to state laws, USP and/or PCAB accreditation standards.

Memberships: IACP, ASHP, FIP, NPTA and AAPT.

Please provide a statement of why you want to serve.
Compliance in today’s world is difficult. Pharmacies have to decide which regulatory body they want to please. The future of compounding and patients’ access to compounded medications is in danger if there isn’t some sort of compromise. I see the day-to-day problems that pharmacies face. My goal, professionally and as a potential board member, is to help pharmacies understand the rules and when given the opportunity, have an impact on the rule-making process.
