Featured Speaker

Exploring Teaching Homeopathy in U.S. Pharmacy Schools
Presented by William R. Doucette, Ph.D.

Dr. Doucette is the Deborah K. Veal Professor in Health-Care Policy in the Department of Pharmacy Practice & Science at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. His research interests include ways that pharmacists, especially in the community, can influence medication use. Bill is currently working to publish a study of data collected in Winter 2021–2022 on the status of homeopathy being taught in U.S. pharmacy schools. The study emphasized preparing pharmacists to be reliable sources of information for patients when they ask about homeopathic products. If published, the study would be just one of nearly 200 peer-reviewed publications in which he has been involved. As a professor, he hopes to advance ways that pharmacists can help patients take their medications safely and effectively.
