My mission as a pharmacy practice faculty member is to use my pharmacy and public health backgrounds to apply epidemiology and social science methods to the study of drug use problems, especially those dealing with pharmaceutical care, rural health, and outcomes research. Other priority areas are: 1) to foster interest in pharmacy practice research by serving as a mentor and role model for students, and 2) to achieve excellence in teaching professional practice, particularly health care systems, pharmaceutical care, and outcomes research. My mission and priorities are tethered by my responsibility to balance my personal agenda for development with the needs of the institution in which I work, and my family responsibilities.
