In this episode, we have a very special guest who is the only pharmacist serving as a member of the U.S. Congress - Rep. Buddy Carter!
Our guest is Congressman Buddy Carter who is an experienced businessman, health care professional and faithful public servant representing the 1st District of GA. As the owner of Carter’s Pharmacy, Inc. South Georgians have trusted Buddy with their most valuable assets: their health, lives and families for more than thirty years. While running his pharmacy business, he learned how to balance a budget and create jobs. He also saw firsthand the devastating impacts of government overregulation which drives his commitment to ensuring that the federal government creates policies to empower business instead of increasing burdens on America’s job creators. He is a proud graduate of Young Harris College and the University of Georgia where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy.
