Choi Chung, RPh, BScPharm
Founder, Director and Healthcare Consultant
Choi is a practicing clinical pharmacist and a pharmacy manager of a community pharmacy located within the inner-city of Edmonton, Alberta. He has been practicing since he received his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Alberta. Since he’s been practicing, he has also been involved in publishing the nutritional book, The Healthcare Practitioner’s Guide to Nutrition, and has been actively involved in working alongside other healthcare professionals in developing programs and projects aimed to solve the gaps within the healthcare system.
Within his current practice environment, he works closely with other healthcare providers to provide care for a marginalized population struggling with mental health and substance dependencies. Choi has also had experience working within various community and institutional settings, travel medicine clinics, and even working alongside physicians in the management of medical cannabis therapy for his patients.
Through his practice experience and having personally witnessed family members encounter obstacles that prevented them from obtaining the necessary care they required, he founded Orbis. His vision was to create a healthcare system where accessibility was not limited by one’s mobility, means of transportation, or one’s ability to weather the financial implications of lost work time to attend an appointment. Since Orbis’s founding, Choi has worked closely with his team to consistently deliver quality healthcare services and information using a multi-faceted approach through online healthcare consultations, health articles and health content delivered through various social media platforms.
