Growing up in a small town, Anita Sharma was drawn to the urban environment of PCP and the various connections that PCP had with other healthcare sites. What she did not realize at the time was that she would find her calling. “I always knew that I wanted to help people get the most out of their medications,” she said. After graduation she moved on to an ambulatory care residency at The University of Minnesota. Perhaps more importantly, through her exposure to the profession through PCP, Sharma understands that as the profession of pharmacy evolves, it is in need of individuals who can provide leadership in the direct delivery of pharmaceutical care to patients, expansion of pharmaceutical care practices, development of reimbursement models for pharmaceutical care, and practice-based research in pharmaceutical care, as well as provide effective education in pharmaceutical care to pharmacy students and practitioners.
