Dr. Jeff Huston practiced community pharmacy for 11 years. He then accepted a position as Clinical Assistant Professor with The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy teaching in the professional practice laboratory series of courses. In December 2002, he added working with The Ohio State University College of Medicine Division of Pharmacology, ultimately serving as Lead Pharmacist for the clinical trials unit. His duties included preparing investigational products as part of various randomized, single and double blind and placebo controlled studies from major medical research and development firms to dose subjects participating in various phases of drug development. Serving the "underserved" with medical care has been a major theme in Dr. Huston's career. In March 2005, as part of his appointment with The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, he became the Director of Columbus Neighborhood Health Center Dispensing Pharmacy. During his time there he expanded the Pfizer Share the Care program, transitioning it to electronic processing. In 2006, Jeff developed an annual Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience rotation focused on "serving the underserved." During this fourth year rotation, students learned to serve the needs of those with limited access to healthcare. The rotation included a medical mission trip to Honduras in coordination with World Gospel Mission, where student-pharmacists provided quality healthcare to the poorest residents of Choluteca, Honduras, in collaboration with an interprofessional healthcare team. Dr. Huston was also one of the pharmacists who helped establish the Grace Free Clinic in Delaware, Ohio, in 2006. This clinic consisted of a volunteer team of interprofessional healthcare providers that collaboratively served the uninsured population of Delaware and Marion counties by addressing their healthcare and spiritual needs. In 2008 he worked with Astra Zeneca Corporation to start the highly successful AZ and Me indigent medication assistance program at the Columbus Neighborhood Health Center. In 2010 he helped transition the centers from patient charts to electronic medical records, integrating them with the current indigent medication assistance programs. In 2010 Dr. Huston joined Cedarville University and presently serves as Director of the Pharmacy Practice Laboratory and Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice. His more than 28 years of pharmacy practice and research experience coupled with his passion for international ministry promises to enrich the lives of Cedarville pharmacy students
