Candace Necyk, MSc

C Necyk 22SEPT15

Training Program: PhD in Public Health, School of Public Health, University of Alberta

Candace was born and raised in St. Albert, Alberta. She graduated from the University of Alberta in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and worked for 2 years as a community pharmacist with Safeway Pharmacy. At this point, she switched to Sobeys Pharmacy and also went back to school to complete a Master of Science through the Department of Medicine at the University of Alberta while maintaining a full-time clinical practice. Her area of focus for her MSc degree was the safety and surveillance of natural health product use in community pharmacy patients. Candace accepted a position as a Clinical Assistant Professor with the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Alberta in 2012 and completed her MSc in 2013.

After working for a few years at the Faculty, Candace decided to once again return to graduate training to pursue a PhD in Public Health under the supervision of Dr. Dean Eurich. The decision to do so stemmed from a growing interest to expand her research role within the Faculty and university, as well as an increased interest in the area of mental health. She is interested in research that focuses on the role of pharmacists and primary care providers in the screening and management of depression, especially in light of the expanded scope of practice of pharmacists through comprehensive care plans and medication reviews. She very much looks forward to the opportunity to work with the ACHORD team and have the opportunity to learn under their breadth of knowledge and experience.
