Residents and their Preceptors

Project Proposal: Primary Care Diabetes Program Incorporates Community Pharmacists To Improve Patient Outcomes
Drew San Juan, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Kroger Pharmacy in Little Rock, Arkansas. Dr. San Juan graduated from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy.
Dr. San Juan believes our profession is in a unique, transitional phase that enables us to create new opportunities that utilize our skills. Community pharmacy has been moving away from the traditional dispensing workflow and has been evolving into more clinical roles. It’s imperative that we, as pharmacists, are strategic in transforming our profession.
"I am most excited about extending the continuity of care and communicating between both sites. Findings from this study could change perceptions of the value of pharmacists and it may be able to help others develop innovative strategies to foster collaboration between community pharmacies and primary care clinics."
