Biography

Erin E. Miller completed her PharmD at North Dakota State University. She continued her training by completing a Pharmacy Residency at the Veterans Affairs Health System in Fargo, ND and her Masters in Business Administration at North Dakota State University.

Following this training, Dr. Miller served briefly as an Adjunct Instructor at Rasmussen College in Moorhead, MN teaching Pharmacology for Allied Sciences and then joined the Information Technology Department at Sanford Health where she worked as a Clinical Informatics Pharmacist. After a year at Sanford Health, she moved in to a leadership position and held various leadership positions within the department for 7 years. During that time, Dr. Miller had the opportunity to collaborate with many different departments within Sanford Health including Pharmacy, Oncology, Dialysis, Research, and Genetic Medicine, as well as numerous vendors and collaborators. Her focus was on helping departments leverage technology to aid their daily work, improve patient care, and promote changes necessary for strategic development.

Dr. Miller joined South Dakota State University College of Pharmacy and Allied Health in January 2020 where she teaches Professional Resources Management, US Healthcare Systems, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine courses. She also is a part of the teaching team for Integrated Lab 3, Public and Population Health, and Pharmacy Practice 3. In the Master of Public Health program, Dr. Miller is one of the faculty for the Applied Practice Experience series and the Integrated Learning Experience (Capstone) course, as well as serving as a advisor and mentor for MPH students. Her research interests include leadership in healthcare, community pharmacy practice, and implementation science.

1. CDC Program 1815 - Improving the Health of Americans Through Prevention and Management of Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke, a 5-year project working with patients, practitioners, and payers to improve outcomes for patients with diabetes and heart disease through leveraging pharmacy services;
2. START-SD - HRSA Rural Communities Opioid Response Program - Implementation, a 3-year program to reduce morbidity and mortality of opioid use disorders by improving access to prevention, treatment, and recovery services available to patients and their families in Brookings, Codington, and Hughes counties;
3.
