SPRINGFIELD — Louis & Clark Pharmacy in Springfield has named Kara James, PharmD, its new president. A co-owner of the pharmacy, James previously held the position of pharmacy manager. She has been with Louis & Clark since 2012.

“I have spent the last eight years learning and growing with Louis & Clark,” James said. “In my new role, I will ensure we continue to provide the outstanding care and customer service we are known for, while also expanding with new services and technology that allow us to meet increasing demands as healthcare evolves. This role will move me from overseeing our day-to-day operations to looking at the big picture and strategizing for continuous improvement.”
