Dr. Tomaszewski has focused his research in three primary areas, measuring pharmacists involvement in political advocacy, measuring the impact of student activities, and evaluations of patient focused medication experience.  Dr. Tomaszewski is currently working on developing a research program using a number of health theories to measure the impact of pharmacist provided services on medication adherence.  This work is intended to be paired with an economic evaluation of the impact of medication non-adherence and used to determine a potential return on investment from expanding the role of pharmacists on medication adherence counseling.  Current research in this area Is focused on measuring the medication experience of female college students using hormonal contraceptives.

KEYWORDS: Political advocacy, civic engagement, professional engagement, professional commitment, medication adherence, medication experience, and hormonal contraceptives.
