Joshua Pirestani is the founder of the APPA. He formed the  Alliance due to the lack of a voice for the independent pharmacies where the consumers are known by their names are slowly being swallowed by these larger institutions because of unavailable opportunities not provided to smaller pharmacies and professionals in these industries.
