“I feel this program is a great opportunity to broaden my horizons across other domains of healthcare. Louisville is home to a diverse group of healthcare organizations, and we can all improve by sharing our collective expertise. One common theme in healthcare is medication management. As a pharmacist, I bring a unique perspective to the program. In doing so, I am sure I can meaningfully contribute to the curriculum and help drive improved outcomes for member organizations and our Louisville community.”
