Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Drawn to a career in pharmacy due to his longstanding desire to help people, Mr. Aronson was further inspired by his grandfather, who was a pharmacist, as well as his early experience working in an Eckerd drugstore warehouse. He initially earned a Bachelor of Science degree in pharmacy from the College of Pharmacy at the University of Louisiana at Monroe in 1972. Soon thereafter, he refined his skills as a retail pharmacy intern with Steven's Pharmacy and as a pharmacy graduate intern with Brookline Pharmacy before obtaining his licensure as a pharmacist in the states of Louisiana, Massachusetts, and Florida. Mr. Aronson has subsequently excelled as an inpatient clinical pharmacy specialist and conducted considerable work verifying physicians' orders in addition to discharging and counseling veterans.

Mr. Aronson began his career as a pharmacist with Boston City Hospital in 1974, a position he held for over 20 years until the hospital merged with the Boston University Medical Center to become Boston Medical Center until in 1996. He flourished in the same post with the Boston Medical Center until 2002. In 2003, he worked as a part-time pharmacist with the Family Med Pharmacy, the Costco Pharmacy, CVS Procare, and the Target Pharmacy, prior to working at the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Rhode Island as a full-time clinical pharmacist in 2004. Mr. Aronson was promoted to a clinical pharmacy specialist position at the VA Medical Center in 2011, a role in which he remained until his retirement in 2019.

Attributing much of his success to being compassionate and a good listener, Mr. Aronson has contributed his time and resources to a number of other professional endeavors over the course of his career. During his tenure with the Boston Medical Center, he was active as a member of the patient/family education steering committee and at the Providence VA Medical Center where he worked and served as a volunteer trainer for pharmacy technicians, pharmacy students, and pharmacy residents throughout his career. In order to stay aware of developments in his field. Mr. Aronson maintained his professional affiliations with the American Pharmacists Association, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, the Massachusetts Pharmacists Association, and the Massachusetts Society of Health-System Pharmacists.

However, he cites his greatest accomplishments as his ability to do the right thing and train people so they can help others. Some additional highlights of Mr. Aronson's career include being an elected union shop steward for both the pharmacies at Boston City Hospital and the Boston Medical Center, helping pharmacy management in the scheduling of weekends and evenings for his fellow pharmacists, the commendation he received from Boston City Hospital for working during a blizzard in Boston in 1978, and preventing an attempted armed robbery of narcotics from the pharmacy at Boston City Hospital.
