Rob Kauffman (R-Franklin), chairman of the House Labor and Industry Committee; Joe Pritchard, chief executive officer, Pinnacle Treatment Centers; John Hanna, former director, Pharmacy Program-Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation; Dr. Jennifer Dragoun, president and chief executive officer, Comprehensive Script Management; and Bob Carl, pharmacist and president and CEO of the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce.
