The recipient of graduate certificates in project design and international marketing, Terrell “Terry” Herring brings nearly 30 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry to Mission Pharmacal Company through his position as president of commercial operations. Under Terry Herring’s guidance, the company has expanded its product reach to include long-term care providers for residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
Mission launched its long-term care plan in 2014 featuring four proven products designed to enhance the comfort, compliance, and dignity of nursing home patients. In addition to a small calcium and vitamin D supplement, Mission also partnered with a company offering an effervescent tablet for oral consumption which increases bone mass and helps treat osteoporosis.
The other two products come in the form of spray bottles, one of which requires a prescription and is used orally to provide relief from dry mouth. Finally, the company offers a zinc oxide spray which provides relief from incontinence associated dermatitis as well as resulting discomfort, illness, and pressure ulcers. Mission continues to seek out and develop unique long-term care products through partnerships with healthcare professionals.
