Darshan Kulkarni Pharm.D, Esq to help APPA members survive Amazon takeover

Shares of Walgreens, CVS, Walmart and Express Scripts have dropped 14%, 1%, risen 15% and dropped 5% over the last three months on news that Amazon may be entering the pharmacy world.

United States, 1 November 2017 -- Philadelphia, PA – October 30, 2017: Dr. Darshan Kulkarni, a leading Food and Drug and principal attorney at the Kulkarni Law Firm, has been appointed to serve on the board of the American Pharmacy Purchasing Alliance (APPA) ( which has over 1,700 members and represents over 1,100 independent retail pharmacy owners.

APPA members primarily consist of small to mid sized independent pharmacy owners who will be significantly impacted by Amazon’s entry into the pharmacy industry. The impact of Amazon on these small business owners could change lives, impact livelihood and potentially decimate cornerstones of several communities – the small independent pharmacy.

It is unlikely that these small businesses will survive in the mid to long term unless they band together and learn from each other’s strengths and weaknesses. For that reason, APPA is taking proactive steps to address the needs of these small to mid-sized pharmacies such as by helping its board better manage potential problems and is using the help of its new board members like Dr. Kulkarni.

Dr. Kulkarni provides regulatory and legal advice to pharmacies and other FDA regulated entities and their service providers and focuses on the intersection of pharmacy and FDA related issues.

He has worked as a pharmacist for more than 14 years in multiple capacities including hospitals, retail pharmacies, managed care, and has even participated as an unblinded clinician in clinical trials.

Dr. Kulkarni is regularly quoted in numerous national and international magazines on life sciences related matters and serves in the American Bar Association representing various interest groups including the Healthcare Fraud and Compliance section and the Life Sciences Interest Group.

He also hosts the famously popular Gavel and Pestle Podcast on the Pharmacy Podcast Network, speaks at a variety of pharmacy (and non pharmacy related events) and is routinely quoted across national and international magazines, journals and more.

Dr. Kulkarni has taught at a variety of schools including Johns Hopkins University, Thomas Jefferson University Medical School, Drexel University School of Chemical Engineering, and Temple Law School. He is currently the Visiting Professor and teaches in both the Biomedical Writing Program and the MBA program at the University of the Sciences where he won the 2014 Outstanding Adjunct Professor award.

Dr. Kulkarni has written numerous articles, and has contributed to chapters on pharmacy compounding in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th editions of textbooks for the American Bar Association’s Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Law: Regulation of Research, Development, and Marketing.

Dr. Kulkarni is featured on the Gavel and Pestle on the pharmacy podcast and has even been a blogger for pharmacy times. He currently serves on various Editorial Advisory Boards and was voted in the Top 50 of the#Pharma100 for 2012 and 2013.

He can be contacted at or at 215.948.8183.
