Assistant Professor of Pharmacy and Therapeutics, University of Pittsburgh

Dr. Joni Carroll is an Assistant Professor within the Community Leadership and Innovation in Practice (CLIP) Center at the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy, and she also serves as a Lead Pharmacist with the Allegheny County Health Department. Dr. Carroll's research is motivated by what she sees in practice – the unfortunate, fragmented healthcare that people receive, the health disparities that exist, and the unmatched accessibility and potential of community-based pharmacists to help people live their healthiest lives possible. Dr. Carroll utilizes implementation and dissemination science principles to assist community-based pharmacists with 1) their roles as public health providers and 2) building sustainable, equitable pharmacist-led patient care services. As a pharmacist and researcher, Dr. Carroll is passionate about bringing patients and stakeholders into the research and implementation process - not simply as research subjects, but as partners.

Dr. Carroll recently received funding to implement widespread anti-stigma education surrounding opioid use disorder for pharmacists, student pharmacists and pharmacy technicians; and for the development of a community pharmacist practice-based research network in Pennsylvania. Other recent projects focus on implementing pharmacist-led public health initiatives, such as COVID-19 vaccines and oral antivirals, community pharmacy test-to-treat programs for sexually transmitted infections, and the exploration of pharmacists' roles in emergency preparedness and medical countermeasures planning. Through the CLIP Center, Dr. Carroll mentors a variety of, students, residents, and fellows on projects relating to community pharmacy practice development and community pharmacists roles in public health and health equity. She currently serves as the director for PittPharmacy's Public Health Pharmacy Fellowship. In addition to her research and teaching, Dr. Carroll also provides direct patient care for patients with tuberculosis within the Allegheny County Health Department’s Pulmonary Clinic.
