Michael Blaire, RPh, FIACP, of Diamondback Drugs in Scottsdale, has been named as a fellow by the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP), in recognition of his contribution as a specialist in the art and science of pharmacy compounding.

The 2017 Fellows were honored during IACP’s Compounders on Capitol Hill conference held this month in Washington, D.C.

Pharmacy compounding is the tradition in pharmacy practice allowing physicians to prescribe medicines that are specially prepared by pharmacists to meet patients’ individual needs.

Since IACP’s fellowship program was established in 1997, 94 pharmacists have been named as fellows. IACP represents more than 4,000 pharmacists, technicians, students and members of the compounding community. JN
