Amy is part of the millennial generation (Generation Y) although she is pretty close to the border between Generation X and Generation Y. She is from Georgia. In addition to being a pharmacist, she is also a wellness coach and an MS patient. As such, she brings a truly unique perspective on healthcare to the podcast.

Here are 3 things that stood out as Amy Behimer shared a pharmacist’s perspective on healthcare:

  • In patient centered care, the patient must play a central role in making their own decisions about healthcare. Additionally, they must advocate for themselves to ensure that they are heard and valued.
  • Quality healthcare must encompass the entire human being: physical, mental, and emotional. It is essential to consider the entire being rather than focusing solely on specific symptoms or conditions.
  • Changes in healthcare as well as society need to be incremental. The changes in mindset do not need to be driven by medication, it needs to be small, sustainable change that happens one person at a time.
