Pharmacist's Helping Treat Diabetes

Pharmacist assisting a customer with a question about and over-the-counter productA recent online Drug Topics article – Diabetes Mortality Has Increased, But Pharmacists Can Help – underscores the increasing role of today’s pharmacists. No longer found primarily behind the counter dispensing medications, today’s pharmacists are coaches, interventionists, and patient advocates, helping address some of the greatest health challenges facing our nation.

The article explains how pharmacists are uniquely positioned to screen patients for pre-diabetes and diabetes and helping them with HbA1C levels, lifestyle changes, medication, and more. Most patients see their pharmacists regularly – 35 times per year on average, according to the author -- while they may only see their doctor twice a year.

The Cedarville University School of Pharmacy is equipping students through pharmacy excellence and Christlike compassions. Students learn from and are mentored by professors who are highly credentialed, experienced, and godly pharmacists.

If you want a rewarding career where you can make a real difference in people’s lives, consider pharmacy. And consider a Doctor of Pharmacy from Cedarville University.
