How This Entrepreneur Has Taken Her Skill Sets in Pharmacy to Found The Largest Organization in The United States

“Great teams will outperform great people. Growing up we are raised to focus on our individual achievements. How quickly we can read, ride a bike, win the spelling bee, do homework and perform on examinations but ultimately what you apply in collaboration is the most critical component to any part of success.”  –  Dr. Suzanne Rabi Soliman

This is the powerful realization that’s disrupting the pharmacy industry and restoring a semblance of a work life balance back to the family.  A Pharmacist by trade, Dr. Soliman is preceded by her reputation of accomplishments, as a medical expert and journal reviewer or how she served as Assistant Dean to University of Illinois at Chicago College of Pharmacy.  She’s an independent Pharmacy owner, and understands the toll that highly successful achievers face, particularly when it comes to work life balance.  

Dr. Soliman credits her family, her husband, children and her mentors for helping her build a foundation of high achievements, but Suzanne knew that something had to change if she was going to enjoy time with family while creating a wave in an industry that services so many people in need.  After taking to Facebook one evening, Dr. Soliman had the inclination to start a group looking for others in her industry like her.  She found 1000 initial connections who identified with her altruistic mission of reforming an industry and grew that group to 35,000 and created a 501c3 around the group called Pharmacist Moms Group (PhMG™).  Today, it’s the largest organization of Pharmacists in the United States. 

Serving the public in such a sector comes with a high degree of responsibility.  Pharmacists take this responsibility extremely seriously and the stresses of the job oftentimes can have profound effects on the personal lives of the people serving in these roles.  By addressing her own struggles and being “real” about an industry that’s very professional, Dr. Soliman and others have begun to break down barriers that exist in the industry and are cultivating a wave of change that surpasses the services even being offered by major insurance companies right now.

Dr. Suzanne Rabi Soliman is a Rufus A. Lyman award recipient which is granted for the best manuscript published in the American Journal of Pharmacy Education. In 2019, she was a recipient for the Next Generation Pharmacist Civic Leader Award and continues to lead the industry from a place of support and achievement.  When she’s not focused on her interests of parenting, women’s health, assessment and professional development, she’s now spending more time with her Children, Husband and even has taken on the challenge of running a 5k!  “Great Teams will outperform great people.”  If we learn anything from Dr. Soliman on her professional journey, it’s that you can be a high achiever and build a team that supports a positive work life balance, rather than trying to take on everything by yourself.
