Jim Perry, PharmD
Pharmacy name: District Drugs & Compounding Center, LTD., Rock Island, IL

Years Previously Served on IACP Board: NA


Provide a brief bio of your career.


Jim Perry graduated from Creighton University, in 1991 with a B.S. in Pharmacy.  He spent his first 6 years practicing pharmacy in a small rural hospital setting, which gave him the tools to hone his skills providing pharmaceutical care.


In 1998, Jim and his wife pursued a life long dream and became business owners after purchasing District Drugs in Rock Island, Illinois.  After a year of practicing community pharmacy, Jim became frustrated with the state of “managed care”.  Having had an interest historically with compounding, an opportunity arose to pursue another dream.  Jim partnered with Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) in 1999 and began to provide sterile and non-sterile compounding services.


After practicing in a hybrid pharmacy setting for many years, Jim sold his traditional practice in 2009 and now operates a diverse compounding-only pharmacy in Rock Island, Illinois (District Drugs & Compounding Center, LTD). Jim believes that by working thru the triad (patient, physician, and pharmacist), we can provide quality care with positive outcomes (through compounding) that may not have been met by traditional pharmaceutical means.


Beyond the pharmacy, Jim finds himself lecturing to the community.  This includes Continuing Medical Education seminars for physicians and providers or community patient education for the layperson with various healthcare interests. Jim is currently a member of IPhA, NCPA, PCCA, IACP (board member 2006-2009), PCCA Advisory Council (2016-2017) and was awarded National Innovative Pharmacy Practice (2008). Contract Clinical Pharmacist with PCCA’s PCD department (2011-Present)


Please provide a statement of why you want to serve.


I would be honored to be to serve our community of compounding pharmacists as a board member of IACP.   I believe the only way to lead is to serve, to always put others first.   If elected, I would give my all to help protect, promote and advance the practice of compounding pharmacy.   The best days are truly ahead of us.  Thank you for consideration.
