fulmer speaking-final

More than 130 social scientists and scholars from around the world are convening at Northeastern this week for the 18th International Social Pharmacy Workshop, a biennial conference focused on the psy­choso­cial aspects of medication use. In her opening remarks at Blackman Auditorium Wednesday morning, Bouvé Dean Terry Fulmer, herself a nationally known expert in geriatrics, noted that the conference would give attendees the chance to consider healthcare from a truly global perspective. “The discipline of pharmacy is essential and central to everything we do in health and healthcare,” she added.
