Research Interest Statement:
My overarching career goal is to improve patient care and public health through the application of implementation science. Morespecifically, by studying how best to implement evidence-based interventions in community pharmacies, I hope to translate myresearch findings into meaningful policy changes that have a positive impact on access to high-quality care for rural, underservedpopulations. If better integrated into the healthcare delivery system, pharmacies have the potential to drastically improve bothaccess to evidence-based interventions and patient care management. I have begun building my D&I research agenda focusedon facilitating collaborative relationships between pharmacists and physicians to provide cancer prevention interventions andincrease communication between providers. Specifically, I recently received funding from NCI to develop and test pharmacistphysiciancollaboration models and implementation strategies to increase participation in the Vaccines for Children program andcompletion of the HPV vaccination series among adolescents. I believe collaboration and exchange of ideas among atransdisciplinary team that includes pharmacists, physicians, patients, D&I researchers, and community stakeholders is vital tointegrate community pharmacy into the cancer care team, improve cancer prevention, and improve the care of those living with cancer.
