Colonel (ret) McAllister has 27 years of health care leadership experience. Before joining PTCB, he was the Deputy Director of the Pharmaceutical Operations Directorate, TRICARE Management Activity, within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense in Washington, DC.

Prior, he served as the Pharmacy Consultant to the Air Force Surgeon General and the Associate Corps Chief for Pharmacy in the 11th Biomedical Science Corps.

During his military career he served in a variety of roles, directing pharmacies, clinical research, and pharmacy training programs.

"I have a unique appreciation of the services pharmacy technicians provide to the health care team," said McAllister. "Technicians are the backbone of the military health care system and I look forward to transitioning this understanding to the broader practice of pharmacy."
