ABOUT ME

Terri Fagan thinks life as a Senior Care Pharmacist can be a lot like being on a detective show. She calls her chosen career “CSI: Pharmacy” sometimes, because of the way she sifts through the evidence to discover which medications might be causing harmful side effects. And when she’s successfully solved the puzzle and improved someone’s quality of life, there’s no greater reward.
