Multicultural Pharmaceutical Education: An Introduction

ByBarry Bleidt

The interest in increasing the number of minorities practicing pharmacy has waxed and waned over the years. Sometimes the expanded focus is due to a genuine concern for the underrepresented groups, especially when it comes to providing health care for them (historically, minorities practice more often in settings near neighborhoods or localities largely populated by their own Jdnd). Other times this interest is temporary and NO real commitment is actually made toward alleviating the shortage of practicing minorities.
