Jeremy Sasser, pharmacy content strategist at the National Healthcareer Association (NHA), works to give a voice for pharmacy technicians, forecasts trends in content and education, and continually advocates for patient safety. Sasser has dedicated his professional career to the pharmacy industry, supporting education, certification and championing opportunities for technicians overall.

Along the way, Sasser developed a true passion for the field and realized the impact pharmacy had on healthcare as a whole. He volunteered to take on more responsibilities, received a promotion and his part-time job became a full-on career path.
After earning his pharmacy technician certification and receiving his Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences from the University of Arizona College of Medicine, Sasser was ready to put his years of experience into practice.
