Emily Hein, BCACP, PharmD
- Ambulatory care pharmacy
- Preventative medicine
- Medication education
I am an ambulatory care pharmacist practitioner with interests in diabetes, smoking cessation, preventive care and patient education.
Best part of my work: I love building relationships and helping people achieve their health care goals.
Practice philosophy: I work with your providers, educate about medications and conditions, and adjust medications to maximize their effect. I will take action to correct drug therapy problems and follow up to ensure a resolution. I combine clinical evidence and personal preference with the goal of empowering people to make informed decisions about their medications and about their health.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: movie critic – I love seeing new films and discussing them with my husband.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? In college, I knew I wanted to help people, but I also enjoyed science and chemistry classes. Becoming an ambulatory care pharmacist seemed like the perfect fit, since I can help people better understand their medications. I decided to pursue pharmacy as my career in 2009.
Something I have learned from my patients is: I have learned to ask questions and listen deeply, especially if someone isn’t taking a medication. There is often a good reason for it, like cost concerns or side effects.
My personal health goal is: to live a well-balanced life in all aspects of health – not only physically, but also mentally, socially, financially, and spiritually.
What are you most proud of? Raising my beautiful daughter who was born in 2018.
