Jessica Begeman


Student Researcher


Jessica Begeman is a 2025 Pharm.D. candidate pursuing a B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences with minors in biology and American Indian and Indigenous Studies. She worked as an undergraduate assistant in the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions on a project focused on incorporating traditional Indigenous storytelling practices into scientific communications and presentations. She also worked as an intern in the summer of 2021 in the pharmacy of the Indian Health Center White Earth Service Unit on the White Earth Reservation in northern Minnesota. Her research interest mainly focuses on improving health outcomes for rural populations and outpatient services like diabetes and hypertension management. She began working with CPIC in October of 2021. Most of her project work focused on review and updating information on the payer’s perspective on implementing medication therapy management services. She has also been doing background research on implementing medication therapy management services in community settings and the pharmacy technician’s role in this process.
She chose to work with CPIC because she appreciates the emphasis the project puts on improving care for rural populations. She hopes to take this experience and the knowledge she learns from it into her future career as an ambulatory care pharmacist.
