Division of Infectious Diseases

We appreciate our ID Pharmacists

We LOVE our UNMC ID Pharmacists! Today marks the end of National Pharmacy Week and we want to share our appreciation and thanks for the hard work and invaluable contributions of our pharmacists at UNMC ID. Our pharmacists are exceptional clinicians giving us the clinical advice we need on antimicrobials and drug interactions. They are also published national experts in Antimicrobial Stewardship and HIV, experienced educators in both the College of Pharmacy and College of Medicine, and phenomenal colleagues all-around. Our division would not function as well as it does without these individuals, and we cannot thank them enough. Join us in giving some love to our pharmacists!
