Brooke Kulusich is the host of the Gavel & Pestle Podcast: The Fusion of Law and Pharmacy. Kulusich interviews industry-leading experts to dissect legal and regulatory issues impacting the business of pharmacy.

As a final-year student pharmacist at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, Kulusich has been actively involved in professional pharmacy organizations at the national and state levels. She currently serves as the American Pharmacists Association – Academy of Student Pharmacists Speaker of the House, representing over 25,000 members in policy priorities of the profession of pharmacy. Previously, she served as Chair of the Student Advisory Board of the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association. In this role, she presided over 500 student pharmacists and engaged them in statewide advocacy initiatives.
Kulusich is also passionate about community pharmacy practice transformation.

As a student, she has worked closely with leadership of the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Care Network, an enhanced pharmacy services network, to support independent community pharmacies across the state in practice transformation initiatives. Kulusich now serves CPESN as a Programs Communications Assistant for Flip the Pharmacy, a national pharmacy transformation program aiming to re-work community-based pharmacy practice beyond filling prescriptions and toward an ongoing focus on a patient’s health.

Upon completion of pharmacy school, Kulusich plans to attend law school or complete a fellowship in association management, which will enhance her ability to leverage her patient care experiences to advance policy decisions and improve patient access to safe, quality care. Ultimately, she hopes to pursue a clinical or commercial role in a healthcare, government, private sector or public sector leadership position.
