"There's more to truly caring for the needs of pharmacy patients than the medications that are administered and managed. Sincere patient advocacy is at the heart of specialty pharmacy and Diplomat is driven by the hearts of their patients." - Todd S. Eury
In Diplomat’s second Pharmacy Podcast episode, special guest Brenda Hawkes joins Pharmacy Podcast’s Todd Eury to discuss all things patient advocacy. Brenda, Diplomat’s patient advocacy manager, goes over the beginnings of Diplomat’s patient advocacy initiatives, current internal and external activities, and describes why the nation’s largest independent specialty pharmacy makes it a priority to take good care of the patient first.
Diplomat serves patients and physicians in all 50 states as the nation’s largest independent specialty pharmacy. Headquartered in Flint, Mich., the company focuses on medication management programs for people with specialized, long-term medical needs, including cancer, HIV, Hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis and many other serious or chronic conditions. Diplomat opened its doors in 1975 as a neighborhood pharmacy with one essential tenet: “Take good care of patients, and the rest falls into place.” Today, that tradition continues — always focused on increasing adherence and improving outcomes. Diplomat is accredited by URAC, PCAB, VAWD, ASHP and ACHC. Learn more at diplomat.is.
