The Titus Center for Medication Safety and Population Health

Proper medication use is crucial to better outcomes and patient safety, as well as to reducing avoidable healthcare costs. Established in 2021 through a gift from the estate of longtime supporter Susie Titus, the center works to ensure that patients get the right medication at the right doses with the best plan for taking them. The Titus Center builds on the school’s foundational work in connecting community pharmacists to patients with persistently uncontrolled chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and asthma. Helping people understand how to use each medicine correctly also helps avoid dangerous drug interactions when treating chronic conditions. The ultimate results will be healthier communities and more affordable and equitable care.
