Her professional and research interests include community pharmacy, interprofessional
care, geriatrics and rural health.
Robinson is the lead coach for the Greater Appalachian Transformation Effort, one
of 20 teams across the United States selected to receive grant funding through Flip
the Pharmacy. At Gatton, she will be working closely with local community pharmacy
networks and a team of coaches across East Tennessee, Virginia and Western North Carolina
to oversee implementation of practice transformation training in more than 100 community
pharmacies in Southern Appalachia. She will also be partnering with faculty to implement
Gatton’s Community Pharmacy Initiative, a three-year strategic plan to support community
pharmacy practice, teaching and research across the region.
After earning her PharmD, Robinson completed a Community Pharmacy Practice Research
Fellowship (2017-2019) at the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy and Interprofessional
Geriatrics Fellowship (2018-2019) at the School of Medicine at University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill. She returned to East Tennessee in June-July 2019 to work
on a pilot grant with 15 local community pharmacies in the Community Pharmacy Enhanced
Services Network (CPESN®USA) to provide coaching and training to transform community
pharmacy workflow processes to accommodate enhanced services. The grant was funded
through the Community Pharmacy Foundation (CPF) and was a pilot for the national Flip
the Pharmacy initiative, also funded by CPF.
