Dr. Alex Cohen
Accessible Pharmacy Services for the Blind
“Mentoring is important to me because I feel that people in the disabled community who have achieved success should work with others in the community to encourage and guide them to achieve their own success”
We are proud to induct Dr. Alex Cohen into the Susan Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame.
Dr. Alex Cohen is the co-founder and Chief Marketing & Accessibility Officer for Accessible Pharmacy Services for the Blind.
