I am a clinical pharmacist at Brighton Health Center (4-5 half-day sessions). I practice in the internal medicine clinic providing ambulatory care to patients with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and polypharmacy. I currently practice under a collaborative practice agreement and work with 9 internal medicine physicians. I typically see 8-10 patients per ½ day clinic which includes virtual care (tele-management and video visits) and in clinic face to face visits. I also teach mainly ambulatory care topics in the second year therapeutics course at the college of pharmacy.
