The ultimate goal of the grant is to increase patient coverage.“It has been tremendous for the School of Pharmacy and the community that UniHealth has supported us through our work in these clinics,” said Kathleen Johnson, chair of the Titus Family Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Economics & Policy, in an interview with USC News.The UniHealth Foundation initially helped build the program from the bottom up — a program that has been succeeded by more than 100 safety net clinics.“The USC School of Pharmacy’s commitment to safety net providers is exemplary,” said Mary Odell, president of the UniHealth Foundation, in an interview with USC News.In addition to the clinic on Skid Row, the USC School of Pharmacy is also helping run several other safety net clinics around Los Angeles County, including South Central Family Health Center and Clinicas Del Camino Real in Oxnard, Calif.last_img read more
