Troy Johansen
I love being a pharmacist! I’m Troy Johansen, and I have been in the pharmacy profession for 20 years, in both the chain and independent settings. I enjoy interacting with my patients. I strive to know them each by name. My goal every day is to resolve their medication problems and to assist in improving their quality of life.

I graduated from the University of Utah School of Pharmacy in 1996. I have been happily married for nearly 19 years. I have a 13 year-old daughter and a 9 year-old son. I savor the moments I spend with my wife and children. My wife and I enjoy dinner and a good movie. My kids and I relish the time we spend in nature: at Yellowstone, whitewater rafting, or going fishing. My personal hobbies include bowling, golfing, and traveling.
I have served on the UPhA Board of Directors since 2013. This has been a valuable experience in many ways. In serving, my eyes have been opened to the importance of a unified voice. When it comes to legislation affecting pharmacy law, we pharmacists have a professional obligation to be informed, be engaged, and be heard.

I ask for your vote. I would work to increase the strides we have already made with the help of past Boards and presidents. As your new president of UPhA I would work to brighten the future of pharmacy in the state of Utah.

Greg Myers
I am seeking a 3 year board term for the Utah Pharmacy Association Board of Trustees.  I have served Utah pharmacists over the past few years serving as a board member, treasurer and president.  I have actively served on the legislative committee within the association. 

I have been in the practice of pharmacy since 1986 upon my graduation from The University of Wyoming, and later earning a Doctor of Pharmacy degree from The University of Florida.  I have spent my entire career in community pharmacy.  Presently, I am employed by Intermountain Healthcare in a community retail pharmacy.  I’m actively involved in providing MTM services, Point of Care testing, immunization services, and Asthma care services. 

I have enjoyed my years of service to UPhA, and with your support, I will continue to be an active voice representing pharmacy in Utah.
