Faculty Highlight June 10, 2019
Shawn Holaway, PharmD
This month's faculty highlight features Christopher (Shawn) Holaway, PharmD, assistant
professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice at PCOM Georgia.
Why did you choose a career in pharmacy education?
After witnessing suffering from disease and health disparities, I chose, through dedication
in prayer as a Christian, to be a part of a solution which included trusting God’s
plan. Serving in the clinician/educator role allows for the utilization of force multiplication
through education of student pharmacists to eliminate health disparities in order
to create health equity.
What is your research interest?
My research focuses on parametric evaluation and modeling to identify ways to reduce
cardiovascular disease as well as identify health disparities and create health equity.
What advice do you have for a person considering a career in pharmacy?
Pray about your decision, then trust your faith. The profession of pharmacy is "service
based." Students should determine if they are committed to serving others by putting
the patient’s needs first.
