TROY, Mich., Nov. 10, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — A local specialty pharmacy with nationwide reach is growing talent here in metro Detroit through new opportunities to not only train and certify licensed pharmacy technicians onsite, but also track development in training and skills for existing associates, providing paths for growth within the company.
