Description

I am a passionate educator, learner, collaborator and philosopher. My teaching philosophy is built on the foundations of student-centered principles of enhancing student expertise, accountability and responsibility through the use of active learning pedagogy. I am a learner because I believe that learning never ends; we are constantly learning new things from our environment. On that end, I am a voracious reader of healthcare and non-healthcare information. My research philosophy has evolved based on my collaborations with students, peers and colleagues from various disciplines. In each of these collaborations, we have had success because we had shared goals and visions centered on improving provider and patient outcomes through education and communication based interventions. On a regular basis, I reflect on how science applies to everyday life and how life shapes scientific endeavors.

Specialties

Social Administrative Sciences (Pharmacy Administration)

Research Interests:

Optimized patient perspectives, healthcare provider abilities and the environment in which both patients and providers operate are essential for successful health outcomes. My professional interests pertain to these triadic influences on health outcomes. From the patient perspective, my curiosity is centered on identifying patient needs, attitudes and behaviors. From the provider perspective, I am interested in optimizing pharmacists (or pharmacy students) abilities or skills in the areas of managing common patient presented challenges and their participation in medication therapy management and public health activities. From the environment perspective, my focus is on contextual factors that impact patient and provider ability to interact and communicate with each other. The common methodology across the three research perspectives is to conduct a needs assessment and then develop interventions that would improve health related competencies in the provider and public and enhances outcomes for the general public.
