PittPharmacy Alum Chris Antypas ’09 was recently featured in the Consumer Reports article “Get More from Your Pharmacy” discussing value and personalized approach of independent pharmacy services.

The article spotlights three NCPA members for the innovative services they offer and their ability to compete, including Hashim Zaibak, owner of Hayat Pharmacy in Milwaukee and NCPA fifth vice president; Chris Antypas, owner of Asti’s South Hills Pharmacy in Pittsburgh; and Ben McNabb, owner of Love Oak Pharmacy in Eastland, Texas.
