Contributed by Joni Bradley, PharmD, President/CEO Welcome to 2019! For many of us, the New Year presents a time for reflection.

Learning to Lead: Reflections on 2018 Contributed by Alexa Clark, Manager, Peer-to-Peer Education Currently at JB Ashtin’s headquarters, walls are being torn down and new ones built, colors are being selected for accent walls, and large mysterious boxes labeled “fragile” have appeared almost overnight.

Contributed by Ashlee Hartger, Marketing Support Manager There’s something about the holidays that appeal to a person’s sentimental side. Even myself, a glorified skeptic, am writing this excerpt by the glow of Christmas tree lights.

Every October, breast cancer statistics are shared by the media and cancer-related organizations in an effort to increase awareness about its incidence, risks, treatment, and prognosis. I can imagine that some people may ignore the statistics, thinking “I’ve heard this before”, or “I’m too young to worry about breast cancer.” Stop just a minute and […]
We Give Back
We make the time to give back as much as we can throughout the year because it is important to each member of our staff. Each year, we give to the American Cancer Society, Volunteers of America, and the American Heart Association. We also support many local charities and have participated in Detroit Remodeled.
We hold unique events throughout the year for our staff to raise donations. One specific way we raise money is to give our team the option of donating $15 to a specific charity each month in exchange for the opportunity to wear jeans to work. Most recently, we donated our “jeans money” to our city’s school district to reduce student lunch debt. One October, we got our friends and clients involved and raised more than $3,500 for Making Strides for Breast Cancer (American Cancer Association) and our CEO dyed her hair pink for meeting the goal. At the end of the year we sponsor a local family in need to make sure that there are plenty of gifts under their Christmas tree! We know that our contributions, though not large, make a positive impact every month.
