WSPA is honored to celebrate the team of Jane Jacobson and Kelvin Lee, from Tulalip Pharmacy, for their terrific work! Congratulations for winning the Generation Rx Champions Award!
In 2013 Dr. Jane Jacobson started working for Tulalip clinical pharmacy as a staff pharmacist, and Dr. Kelvin Lee joined as Director of Pharmacy in 2014. The Tulalip Clinical Pharmacy is a tribally-owned independent pharmacy that services both tribal and non-tribal customers. In April 2015, TulalipClinical Pharmacy established a new collaborative drug therapy agreement (CDTA) to enable Naloxone distribution and training both on-site and at outreach events. The Tribal Pharmacy, in conjunction with the Tulalip Chemical Dependency/Behavioral Health teams, organized outreach events to educate and train on the proper usage of naloxone kit in the event of an opioid overdose. Realizing Naloxone costs could be a hindrance to the distribution effort, the pharmacy began charging Naloxone kits at or below cost, billed insurances whenever available and uses subsidies from the Tulalip Prescription Fund. On the prevention side, the pharmacy team has been working very closely with the family services chemical dependency team of doctors and counselors to establish Suboxone therapy for opioid dependent tribal members these past 10 years.
