Project Proposal: Patient Knowledge and Perceptions of Opioid Drugs and Naloxone in the Community Setting 

Lesley Johnson, PharmD currently serves as PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident with the University of Kansas & Balls Food Stores located at Hen House Pharmacy in Olathe, Kansas. Dr. Johnson graduated from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy.

The motivation behind Dr. Johnson's project proposal is to hopefully reduce any negative stigma that is associated with opioid drugs and naloxone. Once the knowledge base and perceptions of our communities about this topic are identified, then community pharmacists can go forward and fill in any education gaps.

Her hope with her research proposal is to identify the education gaps and public perceptions surrounding opioid drugs and naloxone. She aims to educate the public about these medications and reduce any stigma that is associated with them.

"I am so excited and grateful to have received this grant! I look forward to identifying the education gaps surrounding this topic, so community pharmacists can go forward and fill in education gaps."
