Dr. Huston, who joined KGI in January 2014, is a Professor of Social and Administrative Sciences in the Department of Clinical and Administrative Sciences. Her main research stream focuses on the psychosocial aspects of diabetes. A current research project is a case-control study that will assess the impact of a resilience intervention on adults with diabetes.
Dr. Huston is also interested in fostering pharmacist role expansion. In the past, she has called for role expansion through creation of a class of pharmacist prescribed medications. More recent work has qualitatively and quantitatively investigated the impact of interventions enhancing immunizations delivery in community pharmacies. Another approach she is taking to pharmacist role expansion is the psychosocial investigation of entrepreneurship among Doctor of Pharmacy students. She has one publication in this area to date, and is currently collecting additional data.
Dr. Huston has a long history of service with the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, and is currently serving as the secretary of the Social and Administrative Services Section and as the KGI School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (SPHS) delegate to the organization. She is currently Chair of the Student Scholarships, Awards, Honors, and Ceremonies Committee at KGI SPHS, and a member of the Program Assessment Committee and the Student Conduct Committee.
Dr. Huston coordinates and teaches in three courses, and teaches additional lectures in other courses.
