The AAE would like to introduce a new program called Asthma Advocates of the Month. If you know anyone doing meaningful asthma work, you can nominate that person to receive this award. Each month, the nominees will receive a commendation letter from the AAE and be listed on our website. Each nominee will also receive a small gift as a token of our appreciation for his/her efforts. The recipient does not have to be an active member of the AAE. If you would like to nominate someone, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the person’s name, email address and a few sentences on why he/she deserves this recognition.
Julio Rebolledo, Pharm.D., BCPS, BC-ADM, AE-C Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice Midwestern University Chicago College of Pharmacy
We wish to recognize Julio for his dedication to improving asthma medication technique instruction and engagement in under-served communities. He is also a welcome addition to the AAE 2019 Board of Directors. Comments from Julio: "As a clinical pharmacist I work in collaboration with a group of primary care providers that provide care to the under-served where asthma and COPD are prevalent. As an assistant professor of pharmacy practice at Midwestern University Chicago College of Pharmacy, I teach pharmacy students the safe and effective use of medications including the use of inhalers. They also, learn how difficult it could be to learn to use multiple inhalers and how important it is to provide inhaler education to all our patients . My vision is to collaborate with the AAE and continue to improve the management of asthma by promoting self - management education among our patients and fostering an interdisciplinary team care approach that includes pharmacists.
