ABOUT ADRIAN

"I HAVEN'T BEEN EVERY-

WHERE

BUT IT'S ON

MY LIST."

 

Susan Sontag

I am thrilled to offer travel clinic services. I have specialized in the area of travel:

When not travelling, I thoroughly enjoy living vicariously through others' travel plans.

I am passionate about the profession of pharmacy and the opportunity to better utilize pharmacists to optimize patient care.  I chaired the Shoppers Drug Mart Professional Practice Committee from 2013-2015 and have been actively involved in creating tools and presentations to assist pharmacists.  In 2015, I was humbled to receive the Shoppers Drug Mart National Associate of the Year award in recognition of my contributions.

My pharmacy is also pioneering in the profession through a pilot program designed to improve delivery of care to cancer patients who develop a blood clot.  We presented the preliminary data of our program at a conference in Italy in April 2016.

I began working as a pharmacist after completion of my degree and a community pharmacy residency from UBC in 1999.  On completion, I returned home to Calgary and began my career as a pharmacist.  In 2003, I became a franchise owner with Shoppers Drug Mart.  I own the Shoppers Drug Mart located in North Hill Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

ABOUT RUTH-ANN

"TO TRAVEL IS TO LIVE"

Hans Christian Andersen

Travelling is an adventure which has always excited me. Up until now, I have sent my children to more places than I have been! Now that they are young adults, my husband and I plan to ‘catch up’ and visit several corners of the world. I am excited to hear about your travel plans and offer advice to make your trip as carefree as possible.

I graduated from the University of Toronto in 1988 with my B.Sc.Pharm. After moving to Calgary, I completed a hospital residency and worked in the pharmacy department at the Foothills Medical Centre. While undertaking my Master’s degree in Community Health at the University of Calgary from 1990-1992, I worked at the Poison and Drug Information Service (PADIS). Currently PADIS serves Alberta, Saskatchewan and NWT and providesfree and confidential telephone advice 24/7 to the public and health care professionals about poisons, chemicals, medicines, and herbal supplements.I continue to work there a few times per month and recently rewrote and passed my exam for Certification for Specialists in Poison Information.

During my career at Shoppers, which began in 2000, I have earned my additional prescribing authority as well as my certification to administer vaccinations.  Since pursuing my interest in travel, I have become a member of the Alberta Association of Travel Health Professionals (AAHTP)and the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM).  Most recently, I successfully achieved the ISTM Certificate in Travel Health.

When we meet to discuss your travel plans, I intend to provide you with information that will minimize any health-related risks that would be related to your adventure. I look forward to seeing you in the not too far off future!
