Project Proposal: Impact of Pharmacist-led Employee Health Screenings on Cardiovascular Health
Ashley Kells, PharmD, currently serves as the PGY1 Community-Based Pharmacy Resident at The University of Kansas School of Pharmacy and Dillons Pharmacy in Wichita, KS.
"With cardiovascular disease being one of the most prevalent disease states in American adults, I believe that pharmacists can be a valuable resource in early detection and management."
My motivation came from performing health screenings for my patients earlier this year. I was curious what impact this quick point-of-care screening had on my patient’s cardiovascular health from one year to the next. I am so honored to be an Incentive Grant recipient! I am mostly excited to utilize the findings of this study to further identify areas in which we can improve health screenings to better assist our patients in living healthier lives.
