Peter Tong graduated as a pharmacist from the University of British Columbia in 2005 and has been working in pharmacy management and ownership since 2006. He engages each patient interaction with the philosophy of giving a clear take-home message that patients can embrace and become empowered. Peter's unique approach has led him to practice pharmacy as a certified diabetes educator between 2008-2013, as a pharmacist with special interests in skin care between 2013-2016, as a weight-management pharmacist between 2015-2016, and in a pharmacy where foot care and gait analysis clinics were routine. Peter's joy for community practice eventually led him to successful ownership of three different pharmacies over a ten year span. He has worked with local doctors, naturopathic doctors, veterinarians, and other health care practitioners alike. Peter looks forward to working alongside the many exceptional pharmacy teams at Pure Pharmacy and promoting the growth of integrative pharmacy in his current role of Regional Operations Manager.
