Former UK Community Pharmacy Resident Named Faculty ScholarJul 23, 2012
Clark Kebodeaux, 2010-11 UK College of Pharmacy Community Pharmacy Resident with Kroger Pharmacy and Patient Care Center, was one of five professors of pharmacy to be named a Faculty Scholar by the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation. Kebodeaux, an assistant professor at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, is an inaugural member of the Foundation’s Faculty Scholars Program.
Launched earlier this year, the Faculty Scholars Program is designed to educate assistant professors from U.S. schools and colleges of pharmacy about designing, implementing and publishing community pharmacy-based patient care research.
This year’s five recipients were selected from 27 applicants. As participants in the NACDS Foundation Faculty Scholars Program, each Scholar will participate in advanced educational opportunities through in-person meetings, regular conference calls, individualized mentoring, web-based lecture material, and online discussion forums. The Scholars will engage in peer-to-peer review, receiving support from an experienced network of researchers nationwide. They will also be eligible to receive a research grant to launch a community pharmacy-based patient-centered care project.
“This highly accomplished and energetic team of Faculty Scholars really captures the excitement surrounding this program,” said NACDS Foundation President Kathleen Jaeger. “The NACDS Foundation created the Faculty Scholars Program with the confidence that this type of research can make a meaningful difference for patients’ lives and public health, and this is an ideal group to live up to those high expectations.”
The first in-person meeting of the accepted scholars will take place at the NACDS Pharmacy & Technology Conference, to be held August 25-28 in Denver, Colorado.
