“Together with the rest of the talented elected team, we will work to advance gender equality and to empower women pharmacists to realise their full potential.

“As the president of the NAWP network, I will work tirelessly to raise the profile of women pharmacists, by being educationally, socially and politically active.”

The new role will also see Chotai serving on the PDA Equality Council alongside the chairs of the other PDA equality networks.
