Faculty Forum - Friday, November 15

Faculty Forum

Friday, November 15th at 4:00 pm

Cohen Science Center


Please join us for the November Faculty Forum featuring:

Jennifer Edmonds – Sidhu School of Business

“A Teaching Philosophy in Business Statistics” 

This philosophy combines elements of experiential, problem-based and technological components for learning and is centered on student success and mentoring. 


Eric Wright – Pharmacy Practice

“Addressing Medication Nonadherence at the Start of Therapy”

Although researchers have developed effective treatments for many health conditions over the past century, there remains a gap between the efficacy of drug therapy and effectiveness in the real-world environment.  An estimated 5-30% of chronic medications prescribed by a provider are never initially picked up by a patient, resulting in poor disease-state control, worse patient outcomes and higher healthcare costs.  Can this gap in first fill adherence be improved?  This faculty forum will discuss the problem of medication nonadherence and report the results of a study aimed at improving the first fill rate of chronic medications.

The Faculty Forum will be held on Friday November 15th at 4:00 pm in the Cohen Science Center Conference Room. The Forum provides a regular occasion to informally gather and learn about the scholarly and research activities that your faculty colleagues are pursuing. Doors open at 4:00 pm and brief presentations and Q&A will begin at approximately 4:15 pm. Thanks to Jennifer Edmonds and Eric Wright for their participation as presenters.

Light refreshments will be served in the spirit of TGIF!
