Neglected tropical diseases like Chagas disease and schistosimiasis affect millions worldwide. Many not only cause physical symptoms but create a cycle of poverty difficult to overcome. James McKerrow, PhD, MD, dean of the UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, joins host David Granet, MD to discuss how pharmacists are working to develop new drugs to combat these diseases. He also shares how the role of the pharmacist in US healthcare is changing as patients increasingly look to them for not only novel treatments but primary health services. Recorded on 10/23/2015.
