I am excited to meet you all and work with you as a faculty member in the Department of Healthcare Management. I am located in Clayton Hall T-122. My office number is 678-466-4567. Office hours are posted on the website as well as the course syllabus. We all have something to offer to the courses and I certainly want each one of you to be fully engaged. Below is just a little about me and we will get to know each other during our courses.
I am a Public Health Consultant Pharmacist . I did undergraduate work in Microbiology, graduate work in Public Health and completed my Doctor of Pharmacy degree so I have been a student in many settings and many years of my life as well. I understand that achieving your academic accomplishments are important. Because of that, I'm hoping to bring a unique perspective to your studies and definitely looking forward to us learning from each other. In general, I believe that the cornerstone of a functional healthcare system revolves around the ability of healthcare professionals to understand collaborative care in terms of their interactions, goals for outcomes and also ethical issues that are present when advocating for patients. Whether it is a pharmacist looking at issues of medication safety and compliance and health literacy, a nurse focused on educating a patient, financial implications for the hospital concerns for the administrator or the chronic disease management issues for the physician, it takes all professionals to move in the direction of building healthy communities.
I look forward to discussing my background and yours during our courses together.
It's exciting to be a part of your journey!
