Faculty Advisor

John A. (Jake) Galdo, Pharm.D., BCPS, BCGP

Dr. Galdo is from Atlanta, GA. His expertise includes quality measures in healthcare, community practice, primary care, and residency/student training. He loves to share his passion of pharmacy with students and colleagues, hoping to unify the profession to one voice, where clinical is synonymous with pharmacy, not practice setting. He has numerous publications and has made multiple presentations across the nation.
