I am a PharmD Faculty for the Department of Family & Community Medicine. I am the Director of Departmental Pharmacy Education and Director of the Pharmacotherapy Clinic. I have a passion for teaching appropriate medication use to both providers and patients. I have expertise in "Health Literacy and Medication Use" and have presented extensively on this topic. My mission is to collaborate and lead the improvement of appropriate medication use in ambulatory care settings. I am actively involved in local community organizations and International Research Groups. With the current needs in health care reform, I am also actively involved in quality improvement initiatives, especially as they relate to medication reconciliation and the prevention of medication related errors.
