The Kappa Epsilon Fraternity (KE) and the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education are pleased to announce that Patrick Campbell, PharmD has been selected as one of two 2016 Nellie Wakeman Fellowships recipients. The Nellie Wakeman Fellowship was established in 1957 to encourage outstanding Kappa Epsilon members to pursue an advanced degree in a college of pharmacy graduate program in the pharmaceutical sciences.

Dr. Campbell is currently in his second year of graduate studies at the University of Arizona (UA) pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Pharmaceutical Economics, Policy and Outcomes. He serves on the Research Affairs Committee at the UA College of Pharmacy; was invited to participate in a measure development team of the Pharmacy Quality Alliance; serves as a co-chair of the KE National Liaison Committee; and coordinates with student chapters around the globe in his role as Membership Outreach Committee Chair of the International Society of Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research.

He is involved in a variety of research projects at the college that investigate the impact of pharmacist-centered initiatives to improve healthcare quality. His research interests center around latent trait measurement including instrument development, psychometrics, and patient-reported outcomes. Patrick would tell you, “I am passionate about the inclusion of the patient voice in healthcare research. Continued graduate training will provide me with the necessary tools to be a more influential advocate for the profession and promote meaningful change to improve patient care.”

Together, we celebrate Patrick’s achievements and dedication to the field of pharmacy and extend our best wishes for a successful future that will benefit many.
