Juliet-NguyenSPOKANE, Wash. – Juliet Nguyen has been appointed to a five-year term on the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention’s (USP) Health Literacy Expert Panel. She is in her second year of Washington State University’s doctor of pharmacy program.

“I am looking forward to contributing to the creation of evidence-based public health standards that make a difference in the lives of patients on a national level,” she said.

The panel provides expertise to the USP’s Healthcare Quality Expert Committee, which develops and revises health care quality standards related to the use of medications in the U.S.

“I was immediately drawn to the health literacy panel,” said Nguyen, who in previous work recruited low-health literacy patients to modify USP pictograms using a real-time graphic artist.
