September of 2016 is when it all began. Sue and Dan met at PGx Certification training at the inaugural Test2LearnTM training at the University of Pittsburgh.
In April of 2017, Dan and Sue reconnected at the OPA Annual meeting and begin discussions about how they could use their training to advance the profession and patient care.
In the Fall of 2017, discussions continued about working together on PGx projects and survey data about PGx showed enormous interest by pharmacists wanting to learn more about PGx.
It wasn't until March of 2018 when Sue and Dan met in Nashville at the APhA Annual Meeting that discussions on how to work together to train pharmacists about PGx materialized. Shortly thereafter, in April of 2018, PGx101, LLC was formed.
Only a few short months later, in September of 2018, the first 20-hour certification course was administered.
Pharmacogenomics, or PGx, is the study of how medications work in our bodies based on our genetic makeup. Each person has a different code and different genome, which means each person has different responses to medications - pharmacogenomics takes some of the guesswork out of choosing medications for patients by looking at their gene profiles and deciphering how medications will be processed.Learn More
