Guest Speaker Bio
Sara Rogers, PharmD, BCPS, is a Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPT), researcher and nonprofit director. As a proponent of personalized medicine and preventing harm from medication use, she co-founded the American Society of Pharmacovigilance in 2018. Since there is a strong genetic component in the way that patients respond to medications, she has taken an active role in addressing barriers to widespread implementation of pharmacogenomics.
Dr. Rogers is a member of the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium, Chairman of the Pharmacogenomics Access and Reimbursement Coalition, and an organizational member of the NIH National Human Genomics Research Institute (NHGRI) Inter-Society Coordinating Committee. She hopes these efforts will lead to improved health outcomes for patients across the US, regardless of socioeconomic status.
