This month, we would like to shine the spotlight on another one of our amazing clinical pharmacists. Meet Erin McGruder!
Specialty: Since 2019, Erin has been a Certified Diabetes Education Specialist (CDCES). In addition to talking with her patients, she collaborates directly with our in-house IT department. She works frequently with them to ensure our software program provides our clinical team the ability to stay up to date with the ever-changing guidelines and recommendations. Erin’s help allows our pharmacists to focus on providing the best possible experience for our patients.
Favorite part about working at Tria Health: Erin’s favorite part about working at Tria Health is the impact she is able to have on her patient’s lives. She feels lucky to have been with some patients since she started at Tria Health over nine years ago. When she reflects on our inclusion as part of someone’s health care team, it is nothing short of humbling to her! Erin loves being a part of an incredible team and company. She is energized daily by Tria Health’s mission to put patients first.
Career Goals: Erin plans on continuing to maintain her CDCES, which includes completing a required number of hours of continuing education. This will allow her to keep providing top-notch patient care and ensure that she is up to date with all the guidelines. Diabetes management is changing so rapidly, from the introduction of novel medications that carry additional benefits for high-risk patients to the expansion of technology to improve blood sugar control at the patient level. Additionally, she hopes to keep developing her role as a liaison between our software development team and the clinical team.
Outside of work Erin is busy wrangling her three children (7-year-old boy, 3-year-old girl, and 8-month-old boy)! They are so much fun and keep life busy! Heading into the summer season they are excited to make memories at the lake!
