Today we’re going to talk about nutrition and life just after pharmacy school with Tyler Dalton, PharmD, a 4th generation pharmacist and very recent graduate of the Harrison School of Pharmacy at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama. He earned his Bachelor of Science from Auburn University in Biomedical Sciences in 2012 and PharmD from Auburn in 2016.
Guest: Tyler Dalton, Pharm.D. (email: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Clinical Community Pharmacist for Walgreens Pharmacy
Professionally, he works as an outpatient clinical community pharmacist in Birmingham Alabama. He provides a bridge between traditional medicine and a next generation approach to health and wellness by promoting nutrition through social media. He also serves as a managed care, a motivational interviewing, and wellness training consultant.
We’ll find out how his experiences, especially those leadership opportunities outside the classroom, have allowed him to experience and share his passion for nutrition through social media and given him a very positive outlook on his pharmacy future.
Tyler, I want to get right to something that we talked about earlier this week and that’s your passion for sharing nutritional advice. Tell us a little bit about what you do and how you spread the information.
You said that you give this advice out on Snapchat, how does that work?
What feedback do you get from your viewers?
You mentioned you’d like to set up Facebook live as well?
How can people get to see you? How do they know when your show is on?
I know lulu.com allows you to create your own book and publish to Amazon, maybe you’ll put together enough recipes to start a career as an author slash nutritionist.
You recently graduated, what made you decide to become a clinical community pharmacist instead of a residency or a post-PharmD MBA?
You mentioned some other work you do as a clinical consultant with pharmacoeconomics on your off hours, how does that work?
How does that experience help you see a more global patient care effort than in maybe a single location?
You also mentioned motivational interview training, could you talk about what that is and how a pharmacist would get into that?
Are you eventually looking to own your own pharmacy?
Tell me about the family ties you have to Auburn University and the Auburn experience.
I know the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) is having their national meeting on Oct. 15-19, 2016 in New Orleans this year, tell me about your leadership role within the student chapter especially those last two years.
The Iowa Pharmacy Association is very active in keeping us up to date and connected to other pharmacy associations. You were active with the Alabama Pharmacy Association as a student, what were your roles there and how did you get into those positions?
Could you present continuing education on nutrition with the state association and stream it live? I feel like this would be a CE that would reach outside the state.
These next months students are looking to do APPEs and choose APPEs tell us a little bit about your “method” of choosing those experiences.
You had an interesting approach to choosing clubs and leadership activities in undergrad and especially pharmacy school, tell us about that.
What’s the best piece of advice you would give to a person looking to get into the pharmacy profession today?
Again, If you’re a P-3 going to ASHP Midyear 2016, make sure to link your leadership accomplishments on Twitter to hashtag Pharmacy Future Leaders we’ll be providing a stipend for one student registration. We’ll announce that person on October 28th, 2016
