Anastasia Armbruster, Pharm.D. ’09, BCPS, associate professor of pharmacy practice at St. Louis College of Pharmacy, and Katie Tellor, Pharm.D., BCPS, associate professor of pharmacy practice at the College, have been recognized by the American College of Cardiology (ACC) for their expertise and commitment to cardiovascular care.
Armbruster was recently designated an Associate of the American College of Cardiology (ACCC). The ACCC designation recognizes nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists and other cardiovascular team professionals who, through advanced education, training and professional development, have dedicated themselves to providing the highest level of cardiovascular care. Specializing in cardiology, Armbruster’s current research is focused on anticoagulation. She has a clinical practice site at Missouri Baptist Medical Center, where she collaborates with BJC Medical Group’s Cardiology team to optimize medication therapy, provide patient education and improve transitions of care.
"It’s such an honor to receive this designation by the American College of Cardiology," Armbruster said. "This is a major highlight of my career so far, and it’s so special to be honored among other cardiovascular care experts who share a commitment to approaching the cardiovascular care experience in a holistic, team-based manner."
The ACC also honored Tellor with designation as a Fellow of the organization (FACC). The FACC designation is presented to individuals from all specialties within cardiology, and is based on outstanding credentials, achievements and community contributions to cardiovascular medicine.
Tellor’s current research is focused on anticoagulation management and the role of antiarrhythmic drug therapy. She is also a cardiology clinical specialist pharmacist at Missouri Baptist Medical Center where she has worked closely with the BJC Medical Group’s Cardiology team over the last several years to care for patients.
"Fellowship is among the most distinguished designations that the American College of Cardiology offers to its members, and I’m so honored to have been recognized," Tellor said. "It means so much to join this amazing group of health care professionals who are committed to providing the highest standards of cardiovascular care."
