Reiter graduated from the Drake University College of Pharmacy and Health Science. He is an associate clinical pharmacist with hands-on experience managing medication benefit design for a mid-sized health insurance company. His experience includes contributing directly to drug formulary and utilization management activities and working with state legislators and a pharmacy benefits management company to help solve policy and business needs.
“I am extremely pleased to welcome Drake as the inaugural Executive Fellow in Health Care Association Leadership,” said AMCP CEO Susan Cantrell. “He shows great passion for helping patients get the medications they need at a cost they can afford.

Qualified candidates must have graduated or will graduate from an ACPE-accredited school of pharmacy prior to starting the fellowship.
