Residents and their Preceptors
Project Proposal: A Simple Phone Call: Community Pharmacist Led Intervention at a Large Community Pharmacy Chain to Promote Antidepressant Adherence.
Andrea Do, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1 Community Pharmacy Resident at Smith's Food and Drug in West Jordan, Utah. She graduated from Regis University.
Dr. Do is passionate about mental health and breaking down the social stigma that surrounds it. She wants the community pharmacy to be a safe place for people to come to with their concerns. As the most accessible health care provider, she believes it is our obligation to not only care for our patient’s physical health, but their mental health as well. Rather than watching from the sidelines, community pharmacists are poised to play a vital role on the mental health care team.
"I am honored to receive this grant because it will motivate pharmacists and pharmacy teams to see the positive influence that they can have on someone’s antidepressant medication experience. I am excited to see the impact that follow-up phone calls providing additional counseling have on patients’ continuation of therapy, and ultimately their mental health."
