Innovator video series: Andrew Schonbe and the PrEP Clinic


In this compelling video series, innovators describe how they followed their passion into pharmacy careers that both change the pharmacy paradigm and make them happy in their work.

At the virtual Pharmacy U National event held March 27-30, the Pharmacy Practice + Business Innovator panel was among the most popular sessions. In this panel, we asked three of the most fascinating pharmacy owners we've profiled over the past year to tell us, in their own words, how they found, followed and built a career based on their personal passions and interests.

We're pleased to be able to share their stories with you here in this new video series.


From real-life experience, Andrew Schonbe has long understood the importance of safe, non-judgmental spaces where LGBQT people can receive trusted health Information geared to their needs. His first two pharmacies provided that friendly environment in their communities. As PrEP became a more accessible treatment option for those living with HIV, Andrew saw that he could provide a much-needed and life-changing service to the community by improving access to PrEP as well as HIV treatment and preventatives. Thanks to technology, his PrEP clinic is now one of Canada's leading HIV treatment and prevention centres.
