Reaching the Corners of the World: Patient Access to Medication (Kya Norby)

April 23, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Rutgers Global Health Institute and Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy present a global health seminar by Kya Norby, PharmD, RPh.

Kya Norby is a second-year pharmacy resident with Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation and Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy at Rutgers. As part of her residency, Norby had the opportunity to spend six months in sub-Saharan Africa, working on the ground with Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation grant partners as part of the Secure the Future initiative. She earned her PharmD from Drake University in May 2017 with a concentration in global and comparative public health and completed a first-year pharmacy practice residency in 2018 with the Indian Health Service in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

During this seminar, Norby will discuss the how the challenges and strengths of health care settings in sub-Saharan Africa affect patient access to medications, as well as how social determinants of health impact both health care and drug access and delivery in resource-constrained settings.
