Research: Health Services Research and Pharmacy Education

The focus of my research endeavors is the evaluation of the structure, processes and outcomes involved in the delivery of pharmaceutical and health care services and products in underserved populations. Also involved is the development and evaluation of instruments used to measure the structure, processes and outcomes of pharmaceutical services and products. Recently, consistent with my administrative responsibilities, I have conducted research in the area of student outcomes.
