Dr. Cameron C. Lindsey was appointed to be the chair of the Division of Pharmacy Practice and Administration in July 2021. She is a tenured professor, and has been actively involved with student pharmacists via didactic, experiential, and co-curricular learning venues in addition to her advisory role for the campus’ APhA-ASP and Kappa Epsilon Fraternity chapters. She has been Board Certified in Advanced Diabetes Management since 2003, a Certified Diabetes Care & Education Specialist since 2009, and a Board Certified Ambulatory Care Pharmacist since 2011. She is a certified immunizing pharmacist and has been educating students and pharmacists to become certified since 2004. In addition to lecturing within the Pharmacotherapy II series and Health Assessment within her specialty, she coordinates elective courses including Comprehensive Diabetes Management and Directed Individual Studies. She has been creative in leading multiple co-curricular activities over the years, including community engagement projects, academic-service learning experiences, international missions, student leadership, and advocacy for the uninsured.

To assist patients, Dr. Lindsey has practiced and conducted research in a wide array of settings. Recently, she has led the school’s efforts to provide COVID-19 vaccine delivery across the Kansas City area and to our own UMKC faculty/staff and student family while also leveraging the school’s resources to help those in need across the state. She completed her appointment housed at the Clay County Public Health Center with a joint appointment with the Clay County Health Department and Rodgers Health in 2016. This unique role served the public health interest of the county while serving an underserved population within a federally qualified health care entity. In her recent past, she had instituted clinical pharmacy services at the local Veterans Affairs Medical Center where she was integral to the clinical pharmacy service creation and research at the site beginning in 1999 after completing her pharmacy practice residency. Dr. Lindsey continued to expand her patient outreach and had a 14-year presence as director of the patient assistance program at the Shared Care Free Health Clinic of Jackson County until its closure in June 2014. She, along with a dedicated group of students, obtained donated medications from drug companies free of charge with contributions reaching close to $9 million. Her scholarly activities have resulted in numerous papers, manuscripts, and a book chapter.

Some of Dr. Lindsey’s proudest accomplishments include her receipt of seven local teaching awards, the Governor’s Award for Teaching, the UMKC Student Government Outstanding Advisor Award, and the national APhA-ASP and Kappa Epsilon Advisor of the Year Awards. She has been recognized by her state pharmacy association as a “Pharmacist Making a Difference” and “Outstanding Teacher Award” along with receiving Ingram’s “Heroes in Healthcare Award” and the KE Merck Vanguard Leadership in Pharmacy award. Recently, she was recognized with the UMKC Board of Trustees 2021 Leo E. Morton Community Service Award. She wholeheartedly believes that it takes a community to raise a pharmacist and with that, comes the responsibility to give back to that community!
