I often meet people going through a rough time in their life, and find it fulfilling to provide the support and treatment needed to help people regain joy and stability in their life. Because we are able to provide medical care, psychiatric care, therapy, pharmacist counseling, and case management all in one office, this provides patients with convenience and consistency, which can improve patient health."
Angie Brooks, RPH
Our new pharmacist is Angie Brooks, a 2004 graduate of St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Angie and her husband (also a pharmacist) are the parents of two children, and they reside in Rolla.
“The best thing about this job is that I am able to work one-on-one with the patients,” said Angie. “I see a lot of diabetes, obesity, poor nutrition, and a history of lack of care for many. My mission is to help patients get the best therapy out of their prescribed medications, and to help them improve their quality of life.”
Angie is very excited about a new program being implemented at Your Community Health Center.
“Your Best Health is a program that makes us partners with our patients, and we are able to work with them on achieving goals. Patients with multiple medications and disease states will find this very helpful. Diabetics, especially, have a hard time lowering their A1C, and need extra assistance. This is a way to reach out to patients on a basic level, and keep them engaged in their own care.”
When Angie is not working, she enjoys boating, spending time with family, and “anything very active.”
