Genevieve Regal, PharmD, HC-MBA, MTM
Rising health care and prescription costs are becoming the norm for many, but Dr. Genevieve Regal, a pharmacist in managed care for Confidio, wants to change that. As more people struggle to afford the medications and health care they need, Regal sees her job as providing a national community service.
She uses her knowledge and experience to help those less fortunate. For the last 10 years, Regal has gone on pharmacy medical missions. In a most recent trip, Confidio sent Regal to El Salvador, where she treated more than 1,000 patients and dispensed more than 2,000 medications. Her work and mentorship on these missions have inspired others: One volunteer switched careers from a professional concert pianist to a pharmacist specializing in pediatric transplants.
“In addition to inspiring me to pursue a career in pharmacy, Dr. Regal has motivated me to help meet the deep needs of others who have limited access to health care through international medical mission work,” Amy Kiskaddon said. “She has helped me realize that as a woman, if you think you are daring enough to change the world, you can and you will.”
