Symposium Speaker: Aniwaa Owusu Obeng, PharmD

Aniwaa Owusu Obeng, PharmD, is Assistant Professor of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Pharmacogenomics Coordinator at the Charles Bronfman Institute for Personalized Medicine, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York.  Dr. Obeng is also currently adjunct experiential faculty with Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Long Island University Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy.  Dr. Obeng earned her doctorate of pharmacy from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2011 followed by residencies at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center and the University of Florida, the latter as the inaugural resident for the UF Pharmacogenomics Pharmacy Residency (PGY2) program At Mount Sinai, Dr. Obeng's current research interests include translational pharmacogenomics, and she is active is several relevant consortia including the electronic MEdical Records & GEnomics (eMERGE) network, the Implementing GeNomics In pracTicE (IGNITE), and Clinical Pharmacogenomics Implementation Consortium (CPIC), among others.
