Health disparities and medication optimization with Cheryl Wisseh, PharmD, MPH

The UCSF School of Pharmacy’s Department of Clinical Pharmacy will host Cheryl Wisseh, PharmD, MPH, from the University of California, Irvine, for the third installment of the Amplifying Voices Speaker Series. The seminar and discussion, “Social Determinants of Health, Health Disparities and Medication Optimization among Minoritized Populations,” will occur on Zoom on Friday, December 2, from noon – 1:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

Several times per year, the department’s Monthly Research Seminar features early career pharmacists, who provide new and diverse perspectives on clinical pharmacy research.

Wisseh is an assistant professor who is board certified in ambulatory care pharmacy. Her practice areas include polypharmacy and medication optimization, cardiovascular disease risk management, and targeted medication management of chronic diseases. She is passionate about serving undeserved, racially, and ethnically minoritized communities regarding disease management and education, social determinants of health, health outreach, and community engagement and advocacy.
