What makes ImprovRx Unique?

As a pharmacist, I understand the importance of evidence-based interventions for patients. That’s why I have based ImprovRx on literature that supports its use after years of practicing, studying, and teaching improvisation while applying it myself in my pharmacy practice. Applying improv has kept me happy, instilled in me a sense of empathy, and helped me overcome the unexpected challenges inherit in healthcare. I believe I can teach you and your team the same improvisational tools to make them more adaptable, empathetic, and happy healthcare providers
