About

Bio

Young pharmacist with three years of experience in managed care including a specialized managed care residency. I have hands on experience in providing drug information and in formulary and disease state management. Currently, I work for a Regional Health Information Organization.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
