UF pharmacy researchers hope to reduce the risk for heart disease and stroke for at-risk patients within a community pharmacy setting. With personal assistance from the pharmacy’s Community Health Worker, patients can better understand and manage multiple medications to improve their health outcomes and quality of life.
