Pharmacists help patients with hypertension
Studies conducted mainly at the University of Iowa have found that if you have hypertension, it pays to have a pharmacist on your medical care team.
Barry Carter, a professor in the College of Pharmacy, led the research teams on two studies, the most recent of which was published in print late last month in the Journal of the American Society of Hypertension. Carter is the Patrick E. Keefe Professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science in the College of Pharmacy, and professor in the Department of Family Medicine in the Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine.
