Updated and Holistic in Approach

Benhaz and Becky bring pharmacogenomics from excited dreams to reality. They combine pharmacy and physician medicine with the financial and technological reality of pharmacogenomics. It’s refreshing to hear and listen to experts give the reality and current direction of precision medicine without trying to over hype it.

Amazing

Behnaz continues to raise the bar by bringing top clinical pharmacists who shed further knowledge on the world of PGx and how pharmacists are best equipped to use this is a tool to show our value in the health system. The quality and content of her guests keeps me engaged and spurs new business ideas for my work with seniors, patient advocacy and deprescribing ! Keep up the awesome work Behnaz !

General evaluations

The webinars were really nice and touch the professionals as pharmacist issues nowadays. I would like to highlight point and hope you guys bring someone who can or he may can help with issue of pharmacy education and how schools now focus the generarte pharmacist as dispenser or clinical pharmacist ( with very limited knowledge & clinically ). I’m old pharmacy school system and pharmacy has a lot of area where the pharmacist must lead those such as function medicine, herb medicine, food medicine, Food drug interaction, genetic Side effects , medicinal chemistry of drugs, natural products, quality control pharmaceutical products- and so on.
