In a world of rapid technological advancements and breakthroughs in healthcare and drug development, the PACE Center recognizes the great responsibility that rests with pharmacists globally, above and beyond the dispensing of drugs. PACE has embraced international programming opportunities, developed value-added programming and built vital sustainable public health trainings and offerings globally. Appropriate changes in health policy and health education enable the pharmacist to serve as an education and information resource on drugs, to benefit not only the general public, but also the health team, administrators and community leaders.
