What I do

My clinical work has focused on developing innovative pharmacy practice models in the physician group practice setting, primarily for under-served populations. My teaching has been in the areas of Medicare Part D, geriatrics, innovative practice models, health policy, health insurance and drug pricing. As the vice chair of clinical innovation, my goal is to extend my clinical work to develop innovative team-based practice models in other ambulatory and community pharmacy settings. Presently, my research focus is in transitions of pharmacy care from the acute and post-acute setting back into the community with an emphasis on an accurate medication list through these transitions of care, interprofessional teaching and learning models, and specialty pharmacy.
