    Ohio state senator tours Lee Silsby Pharmacy, gets the low-down on compounding issues

    Ohio State Senator Kent Smith, minority whip and longtime legislator, paid a visit to Lee Silsby Compounding Pharmacy in late April. Prior to his visit, Smith had a limited background on the world of compounding. Steven Dufala, general manager and pharmacist-in-charge, kicked off the tour with a brief explanation of what compounding is and the patients we serve.

    While walking through our state-of-the-art facility, Nancy Fingerhut, director of quality assurance and regulatory affairs, took the time to explain the various measures we have in place to ensure quality and safety. She brought up the significant impact recent regulatory changes have had on the industry, and what we have done as a company to meet those

    The Atlantic: Menopause, estrogen, and women’s unused options

    Women have been dealing with menopause for a couple of hundred thousand years, and yet there’s still a bit of a stigma talking about it, the effects it can have on a woman’s body, and ways to help alleviate some of those negative issues.

    Reality, though, is more complex — and we’ve learned a lot since the ’60s. Still, though, the lack of a “frank approach to sexuality” for both people born female and those who have transitioned there has kept many from realizing the benefits of other hormones. (Ironically, trans women often get better care when it comes to hormones.)

    The point of all this, and of the Atlantic article, is that it’s important for women to think beyond

    Compounders descend on California legislature

    On April 10, members of the Alliance for Pharmacy Compounding, California compounders, and other stakeholders gathered at the California state capitol in Sacramento to spend the day meeting with 21 different offices of the state legislature to address the challenges compounders are facing in the state. Also there was Revelation Pharma’s government affairs associate, Katie Johnston.

    Towards the end of 2023, Peter Koshland, owner of Koshland Pharm in San Francisco, began organizing an advocacy initiative to address the growing concerns with the California Board of Pharmacy, hiring Cynthia Guerrero of advocacy consultant California Strategies to help guide the process.

    Koshland brought together 25 people with the support of multiple companies and compounding pharmacies nationwide. On April 10, it split into three groups, each of which would meet with seven state
