This Year's Recipient

Lindsey Meston, PharmD


Lindsey Meston, PharmD graduated from the University of Pittsburgh's School of Pharmacy in 2015 and after two years of residency specializing in Ambulatory Care at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, began her career at Asti’s South Hills Pharmacy in Pittsburgh. She has made it her mission to change patient and provider perceptions so that they see community pharmacists as clinical practitioners by providing measureable and sustainable clinical services.
