UConn School of Pharmacy faculty are influential advocates for new techniques, protocols and models of care, addressing problems associated with polypharmacy, medication errors, patient compliance, and more. Our faculty hold leadership roles with the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, American Pharmacists Association, Hematology Oncology Pharmacists Association, American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, American College of Clinical Pharmacy and more. We are also closely aligned with state agencies like the Connecticut Department of Public Health, the Department of Social Services, and the legislature in Connecticut helping to assess, define and craft changes in the health care system. By providing our knowledge and support, we ensure that the State of Connecticut has the tools it needs to function effectively and expand opportunities for pharmacists to improve patient care.
