Dear Alzheimer's Association Community,

***The following post has been approved by Jeff Carpenter***

I am a pharmacist and Associate Professor at the Wingate University School of Pharmacy. Next semester we will be offering our electronic patient program to our doctoral pharmacy students. This program involves pairing up a pharmacy student with a real patient. Students and their patients communicate once weekly over the course of the semester on a variety of healthcare-related topics. We would love to have you share your medical, medicine, and healthcare experiences with one of our doctoral pharmacy students to help them learn from real patients. This will be the fifth year that we have offered the program and we have had a lot of success linking up our students with patients from the web. I am now inviting people from a small number of additional forums to participate this year. I have residency and fellowship training in geriatric psychiatry and currently work on an inpatient unit that works primarily with patients with dementia. Our students have found this course to be extremely useful and helpful to learn about medicine outside of a textbook. I think our students could learn a lot from both patients and caregivers using this message board. As a bonus, students are happy to provide you with drug information. You are only asked to share information that you are comfortable with. We don’t require you to give any identifying information. Only the instructor (me) and a student will have access to your e-mail address. Feel free to check out the authenticity of the school, course and me at If you are interested in the program or would like more information please contact me at Sincerely, Christian
