Dr Ghada Khoury (El)


I am a pharmacist with extensive experience in ambulatory care pharmacy and expertise in Public health practice and delivery. I received my doctor of pharmacy degree (PharmD) from the Lebanese American University and pursued graduate studies in Ambulatory Care pharmacy practice at Florida Hospital, (Orlando, USA). I hold a teaching certificate from the University of Florida, USA. Passionate about public health and health disparities, I completed a post graduate Global Health Delivery Program at Harvard School of Public Health (Boston, USA) and pursued coursework in Public Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (Baltimore, USA). My training, practice and research revolve around advancing population health which have led to publications and platform presentations in national and international well renowned venues. On the personal level, I love learning about new cultures and speak fluently Arabic, English and French.
