About The Center
The Center for Pharmacy Care is part of the Academic Partners Program, a pharmacist-coordinated provider of disease prevention and disease management services for the Duquesne University campus and Pittsburgh community.
The Center for Pharmacy Care, established in October 2002, provides wellness, disease prevention and medication therapy management programs, focusing on hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes asthma, chronic pain, depression, travel health and osteoporosis.
We offer campus and community health screenings, lifestyle counseling, educational seminars, drug therapy review and management, disease state management and outcome reporting for certain health conditions.
Our educational programs, presented by experienced clinical pharmacists and pharmacy residents, enhance the awareness of health and wellness issues. We provide an individualized assessment of current medication therapies and assist our patients in choosing self-care treatment options.
Our screening professionals are student pharmacists under the supervision of our staff. The Center is dedicated to the education of the public in an effort to promote wellness, increase awareness of risk for chronic diseases, medication therapy management, and improve health outcomes. We are driven by the desire to improve the health outcomes and well-being of Pittsburgh and surrounding communities.
