Ron received undergraduate degrees in History and Management from Calumet College of St. Joseph and his master’s in Business Management from Purdue University.


The National Board of Medication Therapy Management (NBMTM) is a nonprofit organization that was founded to protect the public by assessing and certifying pharmacists who meet specific educational, training, professional requirements, and demonstrate the requisite knowledge, skill, and understanding of medication therapy management. NBMTM is not a membership organization and NBMTM’s Board of Directors is made up of member volunteers. NBMTM continues to be driven by pharmacists who want to advance the highest standards for better health outcomes.
