This site began as a pharmacy class project at the Richland College in Dallas in February 2005. But now, it has developed into a major source of information to the health care community such as:
pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy inspectors, nurses, nurse practitioners, nursing assistants, medical transcriptionists, medical coders and billers, medical assistants, medication aides, instructors, and students.

This site is periodically updated and revised by the following health care professionals:

-- David C. Gonzales, B.A., M.D.
-- Islam Ramesh, A.A., CPhT, RPhT
