Pharmacists Making A Difference: Sarah Westberg, PharmD

A series highlighting College of Pharmacy faculty's impact on patient care
Oct. 6, 2017

I met with a woman struggling with a condition that causes her to consistently have reactions to triggers in her environment, including foods and chemicals. In particular, she reacted to inactive ingredients in her medications, which prevented her from being able to take the medications she needed to manage her disease.

I was able to work with her specialist and her local compounding pharmacist to find alternative means to compound and administer the treatments she needs.

The patient was very thankful and felt that we had renewed her hope for a better quality of life!
