Megan Coder, PharmD, MBA, is Vice President of Global Policy with the Digital Therapeutics Alliance (DTA), an international non-profit trade association of industry leaders and stakeholders dedicated to improving clinical and health economic outcomes through the use of high quality, evidence-based digital therapeutics (DTx).

Megan founded DTA in 2017 and remains instrumental in developing the foundations for this quickly evolving industry. She leads DTA’s efforts related to thought leadership, global policy, international standard development, and the Alliance’s DTx Value Assessment & Integration Guide.  

Trained as a pharmacist, Megan graduated from the University of Wisconsin—Madison and completed an Executive Residency in Association Management & Leadership with the American Pharmacists Association Foundation. Prior to DTA, Megan worked with Voluntis, Iodine, the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, and the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.

"Everyone always talks about how small the pharmacy world is, but ironically, it was the Executive Fellowship with the APhA Foundation that opened my eyes up to a universe I hadn't previously known about. Immediately following my residency in 2009-10, I worked with Melissa Murer Corrigan at Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB), where I honed many of the skills I first learned through the residency. And today, I can directly point to those early days with the Foundation and PTCB as the catalyst for the international trade association (Digital Therapeutics Alliance) I launched in 2017. What started as a post-graduate opportunity, has now led to a lifelong passion. For that, I thank you!”
