Pharmacists can play a key role in the care team at community health centers to better patient care and increase health equity. In this webinar, we will look at how one community health center utilizes pharmacists to best serve their community. We will consider the inclusion of pharmacists in issues such as emergency response to disaster and other emerging health concerns where pharmacists can strengthen patient care. Participants will also learn about strategies and promising practices to increase communication and collaboration between pharmacists and other members of the care team like primary care providers and community health workers.
