Kelly Brock is the president of KB Pharmacy Solutions, Inc., a healthcare consulting company focused on advancing the profession of pharmacy that she founded in 2010. Her passion for teaching and helping pharmacists expand patient care services is the driving force behind her company’s mission. Prior to forming her company, Brock worked in an academic position that allowed her to teach at a college of pharmacy and practice in a primary care clinic. There, she had the opportunity to work in collaboration with primary care physicians to help patients manage their chronic diseases and to teach student pharmacists about this model of care. Her career path has provided her with opportunities to work in community pharmacies, primary care clinics, an urgent care center, and a specialty clinic.
Along with her pharmacy practice experience, Brock has always had an interest in research and teaching. She has authored professional journal publications related to her work on collaborative working relationships between pharmacists and physicians and documentation of patient care services in community pharmacies. Throughout her career, Brock has been actively involved in teaching pharmacists and student pharmacists how to expand their practices in areas such as immunizations, over-the-counter consultations, and chronic disease state management.
Currently, Brock is serving as a community coordinator for Project IMPACT: Diabetes, a national initiative that aims to improve care for patients with diabetes. As a community coordinator, she has been actively involved in helping communities develop or expand their models of care to include pharmacists as part of the community-based interdisciplinary team caring for patients with diabetes.
She is an active member of the American Pharmacists Association and the California Pharmacists Association and is the chair of the UI College of Pharmacy Genesis Board.
Brock received her PharmD from the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy in 2002. She then completed a pharmacy practice residency with an emphasis in community care at The Ohio State University.
