A faculty member at the Harrison School of Pharmacy since 2004, Salisa Westrick, Ph.D., was selected as the Department Head for Health Outcomes Research and Policy in September, 2017.
Most of my research has been in the area of pharmacy-based immunization services ranging from adoption to sustainability to abandonment of immunization services. Currently, my studies focus on specific immunization services including Herpes Zoster, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), and pneumococcal vaccines in community pharmacies. In addition, since 2013, I have partnered with Alabama's State Health Insurance Assistance Program to implement a Medicare outreach program by offering student-facilitated enrollment events for Medicare beneficiaries.Further, through funding from Alabama Department of Senior Services, I am leading a project to increase the number of Medicare beneficiaries who enroll in low-income subsidy programs. I also serve as an Associate Editor for Journal of the American Pharmacists Association (JAPhA) since 2014.
