Sara Wiedenfeld joined the University Of Iowa College Of Pharmacy as an assistant clinical professor in 2014. She practices in family medicine at Siouxland Medical Education Foundation. She is a 2007 graduate of Drake University and completed a PGY1 residency at Siouxland Medical Education Foundation.

At the Family Medicine Center, prescription, over-the-counter medications, herbal therapies and dietary supplements are reviewed to determine whether the patient’s medications are appropriate, effective and safe. I work as a team with the patient and their provider to create a plan to resolve medication-related problems or concerns that have been identified. Anticoagulation therapy is managed through a collaborative practice agreement with physician colleagues. I participate in inpatient rounds on family medicine patients and meet with patients following hospital discharge.
