Title: Director of Pharmacy
Company: Concord Specialty Pharmacy
Location: Concord, Ontario, Canada
Sahar Whelan, Director of Pharmacy at Concord Specialty Pharmacy, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Providers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Pharmaceuticals.
With ambition, drive, and desire to fulfill a need to improve quality of life for home care patients in Ontario, Ms. Whelan has become a successful pharmaceuticals professional. She bought a small retail pharmacy after college, but felt she lacked the intellectual stimulation and day-to-day responsibility of her field. Looking for ways to add to the business, she discovered infusion equipment supply and educated herself in the practice, deciding to incorporate it naturally into her business. Today, Ms. Whelan is a Marquis Who’s Who Industry Expert and a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award.
Ms. Whelan holds an MSc in pharmacy from the University of Toronto, and provides specialty pharmaceuticals at Concord Specialty, including medications and equipment. She is very knowledgeable about setting up intravenous medication in a home setting, and regularly ensures the appropriate equipment and medications are set up for physicians’ practices. Ms. Whelan has worked with some children for a decade in managing their complex diseases. She looks forward to procuring more home care patient contracts for Concord Specialty Pharmacy and for government agencies to begin adopting her concepts.
In addition to providing 18 years in pharmaceuticals, Ms. Whelan is a member of the Canadian Pharmacist Association and her membership is pending with the ASHP. She also volunteers her time to the Straight Connection Soup Kitchen, as a pharmacist representative on the volunteer committee of the Palliative Group, and as a child sponsor of World Vision Inc. Outside of her business, Ms. Whelan spends much of her time with her son at AA Hockey and AAA Baseball, and fostering his academics to secure several scholarship offers in the US. She also supports her daughter, an aspiring actress and model, on movie sets and photo shoots throughout North America.
