Throughout his career, Dr. Grissom has achieved numerous accomplishments including serving as a practitioner, medical director, and founder and CEO of the largest pain management clinic in Alaska.

In regards to his new role at SHARx, Dr. Grissom stated, "One of the biggest challenges facing the American healthcare system is ensuring that patients have affordable access to lifesaving medications." He believes that SHARx plays a critical role in this process and is proud to join their team.

SHARx is dedicated to helping underinsured individuals gain access to lifesaving and life-altering medications at an affordable price. In a country where some medications can cost up to $1.5 million annually, many patients are unable to afford them.

Dr. Grissom shares this sentiment and believes that access to medication should not be limited to only those who can afford it. "We've got to do better at getting access for all," he stated. "SHARx will allow me to make a larger impact than the one patient at a time approach I use as a doctor."

With a team of 90 individuals, SHARx is committed to making a difference in the lives of those in need. For more information about their services, please visit
