Medication therapy management available through pharmacists at the Center for Healthy Living

The Center for Healthy Living (CHL) has a complete healthcare team available to you. Chelsea Baker and Jamie Woodyard, both clinical pharmacists at the CHL, are the medication experts on your healthcare team.

Their expertise provides a broad range of healthcare services, including medication therapy management (MTM). MTM is beneficial for individuals who are at higher risk for medication complications. For instance, do you: 

  • Take four or more medications regularly?
  • Take multiple over-the-counter medications, vitamins or natural supplements?
  • Have three or more chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma or high cholesterol?
  • Have questions or concerns regarding the medications you take?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you could benefit from scheduling a MTM appointment with a pharmacist at the CHL. MTM services are available at no cost to benefits-eligible employees and their family members who are covered on Purdue’s medical plan. Benefits of an MTM appointment include:

  • Tailored appointment to your specific needs and wants
  • Improved safety by identifying possible drug interactions
  • Better tolerance of medications by helping with side effects
  • Ensured effectiveness by guaranteeing you’re on the best medications for your needs
  • Reduced medication cost by finding less expensive medications or ones with lower copays if possible
  • Creation of simpler medication routines to make sure your medications fit easily into your life

In 2020, there were 10,960 prescription claims by Purdue employees, which supports the need for MTM services for the Purdue community.

If you think MTM would be helpful to you, call 765-494-0111 to schedule an appointment (in person or via telephone) with one of the pharmacists at the CHL.
