2022 Pharmacy Leadership Academy (PLA) Scholarship Recipient

 Ginny Cummings

Ginny Cummings,

BScPharm, ACPR

Alberta Health Services (AHS)

Ginny works in Calgary at a community hospital, caring for both inpatient and ambulatory internal medicine patients. She has worked in many clinical areas during her career including internal medicine, cardiology, and critical care. As a Clinical Practice Leader, she supports over 20 pharmacists at the Peter Lougheed Center, providing leadership, coaching and practice development support.  Most recently, Ginny has been heavily involved in the development and implementation of a province-wide electronic health record system known as Connect Care (Epic ® based). 

Ginny’s superpower is her ability to connect with people - she leads with authenticity and empathy to find ways to relate to and motivate others. Ginny’s leadership style is based in collaboration and curiosity – she believes that “the true value of a leader is not measured by the work they do. A leader’s true value is measured by the work they inspire others to do” (~Simon Sinek).  

Outside of work, her life is full of volunteering, dog walks, and enjoying time outdoors with her three boys.
