The NACDS Foundation Faculty Scholars program offers faculty at U.S. schools and colleges of pharmacy the opportunity to engage in community pharmacy-based, patient-centered research. Each Faculty Scholar will receive a starter grant to spearhead a patient-focused research project. Through their participation, scholars will benefit from frequent mentor meetings, small cohort working groups and an online lecture series.
“We are excited to welcome this talented new class of Faculty Scholars,” said NACDS Foundation President Kathleen Jaeger. “Throughout the program, these skilled participants will bring their research ideas focused on the improvement of public health from concept to publication. We especially look forward to the meaningful work we are sure each Faculty Scholar will do for the advancement of patient care.”
