Elkhadragy completed her PhD degree in Health Services, Outcomes, and Policy at Purdue University College of Pharmacy under the supervision of Dr. Karen Hudmon in May 2020. She is currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Wyoming. Her research has focused on the evaluation of a shared tobacco cessation curriculum using a theory-based approach and exploring best practices for developing and disseminating evidence-based curricula among clinicians and educators. She has a bachelor degree in pharmacy from Cairo University Egypt, and PharmD and Masters degree from Purdue University. She is also a Board-Certified Pharmacotherapy specialist since 2013 and practiced as a pharmacist for more than seven years in a large-chain community pharmacy during which she gained rich experiences through providing health care to her patients. During her practice, she developed an appreciation to many patient care challenges, including the growing epidemic of substance abuse, such as opioids and tobacco. Having witnessed many of these challenges, she chose a career path that will operate at the interface of pharmacy, public health, and addictions.

Long-term, Elkhadragy’s goal is to contribute towards substantial improvements in health and tobacco control, especially as it related to the role of pharmacy. Elkhadragy’s teaching interest is focused on Social and Administrative pharmacy. She seeks to inspire my students to appreciate the epidemic of chronic diseases, substance abuse and non-adherence, and the challenges patients face when attempting behavioral change. Her research interest is focused on the advancing the role of pharmacy in public health. Because pharmacists are highly accessible, they can positively impact the health and well-being of patients, particularly in rural areas, in which pharmacists might be the only accessible health professional to patients.
