Farah Towfic, PharmD
Farah Towfic, PharmD is a pharmacist at Osterhaus Pharmacy in Maquoketa, IA. Following her graduation from the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy, Towfic pursued an Executive Residency in Association Management and Leadership at the headquarters of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) in Washington, DC. During residency, Towfic advocated for the pharmacy profession and shared tools to help pharmacists succeed in optimizing their role in improving their patients’ health.
To develop her understanding of the pharmacy business model above medication dispensing, Towfic accepted a position as Manager of Pharmacy Services for Boscobel Pharmacy, a rural independent community pharmacy in Boscobel, Wisconsin. Towfic adapted her passion for technology in creating operational efficiencies to enhance pharmacy services, particularly adherence-based services, through the Wisconsin Pharmacy Quality collaborative (WPQC). She adapted NCPA’s Sync My Meds program to streamline WPQC based interventions for patients in order to enhance their medication adherence.
In her current position at Osterhaus Pharmacy, she transformed the dispensing workflow and refined NCPA’s Simplify my Meds program for over 500 sync program patients. She also facilitated the transition to electronic documentation of Durable Medical Equipment Point of Sale services and continues to enhance community pharmacy practice through technology.

In her free time, Farah enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends.
